Opuntia fragilis 'Yellow Spineless'


Opuntia fragilis 'Yellow Spineless'...It suddenly strikes me that the cultivar name could be interpretted as meaning “Cowardly coward.” Okay, the yellow bit actually refers to the flower color – flowers, as is typical for opuntias, are large and extremely beautiful, and the spineless bit is an exaggerated reference to the reduced number of long needles that will attack you if you think about getting near it. Please note that even though it has very few spines, it still has the normal number of glochids – the little obnoxious hairs that will embed themselves in your skin, so still treat this thing with all the care you would a more spiney opuntia.
