Florida Native Opuntias


He y' all: This spring I picked pads of Opuntia dilenni and O. stricta from roadsides on Anastasia island and planted in my Saint Augistine garden. They were initially only a single pad high now they are taller than Saint Francis (40 inches). Native species are great. Bobby Z

Cool, ya may have to move st. Francis closer to the front if they keep growing like that.

Tess: I may but I can also thin them out, my wife says the plumbagos need to stay to keep the butterlys happy. I will probably have to move the grizzly bear cactus to the left. At least they are not branching out horizontally. I will be putting in another cactus agave bed in my back yard and eliminate some lawn in October.
