Product Details


Cane Cholla, Walking Stick Cactus (Cylindropuntia spinosior) (Knuth): A bumpy, treelike cactus with spiny, branching stems. The spines and stem segments don't detach as easily as those of most cholla, making it a somewhat safer, less aggressive species. Its blooms vary in color from purple to yellow and last much longer than many other cactus flowers.

One order = one stem segment about 6.0" to 8.0" long - SHIPPED UNROOTED

CAUTION: Opuntia species have fine, barbed bristles called glochids. Glochids easily detach and can become loose in the box during shipping. They can pierce skin and leather gloves, so use tongs or twisted newspaper when handling. See our Opuntia Planting Guide for more tips.

Opuntia need plenty of full, outdoor sunlight and great drainage to thrive. They do well in gritty, mineral soils and pots with drainage holes. Over time you'll see new pads sprout from the plant, soon followed by its showy blooms.

Opuntia can tolerate high heat and extended drought and can eventually develop into a wide, shrubby living fence. They are semi-frost hardy. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.

Cuttings are not guaranteed to root, but our Opuntia Planting Guide can help increase the success rate.
