Besides this species, I thought I would also share a sample of plants of the "New World" that were brought into the "Old World" and doing well.
In Big Brushy Canyon.
In Black Gap.
In the Scout Canyon.
In a canyon North of Sanderson on private land.
A cactus (plural: cacti, cactuses, or cactus) is a member of the plant family Cactaceae, within the order Caryophyllales. The word "cactus" derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτος (kaktos), a name originally used for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain. Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka.
