Opuntia rubescens ‘Consolea’ is a cactus with real character. It has a striking tree-like appearance with curiously flattened, branching pads which have earned it the nickname ‘Road Kill Cactus’. The pads are covered with bumps from which grow small spines. Their unusual shape makes for a striking indoor plant with a ‘Spaghetti Western’ vibe! Originating from the arid deserts of Mexico, this Opuntia will enjoy a sunny spot and only requires occasional watering, so it’s perfect for neglectful gardeners who want a piece of living sculpture in their home. Height & Spread: Indefinite
