Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please.

The first one is probably O. bergeriana, which is said to grow to 3.5m, so not small! The second, yes, that's an OK name and it's what Royston originally treated it as . However, if you read Paul Hoxey's three-part review of C. sphaerica (available via this page you might decide that Cumulopuntia le...

Re: Opuntia vestita

This one crops up in seed lists now and then, as squarrosus, though I don't know how well identified plants in cultivation are. P5250141.jpg A number of opuntias are coming into flower.

Spring BH flowers

I seem to have gone away over Spring Bank Holiday fairly regularly over recent years and manage to come back to loads of gone-over flowers! I thought that I ought to make the most of being at home this time around and take some plant photos. I find I'm easily captivated by expanses of aylosteras or ...
