As happens so much, I have a question- is this cactus called a prickly pear because of its shape? As you could surmise, I know little details about cactus.
This cactus is certainly a unique shape. This plant can be so tall as I found out from a cactus garden at Bittern on my Mornington Peninsula.
Ouch, definitely long pants required. Thanks for sharing.
Mine finally died here...last Winter...:( They are such awesome plants!!!...:)JP
