Product Details

Highlights

Opuntia monacantha 'Maverick': Prickly pear cactus with pad-like stems. Given full sun, infrequent water, and room to grow, it will produce offshoots and develop into a large shrub. Use caution when handling sharp spines and glochids. Drought tolerant and needs excellent drainage. Unlike most Opuntia, this variety will not tolerate extended frost.

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