*RETAIL - Opuntia basilaris var. ramosa

*THIS SIZE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL NURSERY

This far western Mohavian form of one of our favorite beavertails was found many years ago -- possibly an intermediate between the typical brachyclada form. Unfortunately collectors wiped out the colony seemingly within seconds of its discovery. Though we weren't among the collectors, propagules did get around, so here it is -- a pretty thing with each pad under 3", each one stepped atop another and each clump to about 18" tall. Good in containers or in the dry garden. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.
