Prickly Pear Cactus
This cactus was dug up from my daughter's backyard. It became potbound and was planted in my yard
Beautiful bloom on this cactus before it was transplanted into my yard-May 2007
These cacti are the only Native Cactus of New York State. Where I live they grow in the wooded areas along the shore line.
These vibrant yellow flowers have petals that feel like wax. They grow heartily here in New York. Dormant in the winter and vibrant in the Summer!
