This native plant (Opuntia basiliaris), "beavertail cactus" is very popular in landscapes and public plantings too. The large flowers are an incredibly bright magenta pink and occur in early spring. So beautiful!
"Thanks Lorraine & Joan the Blue Bird is so beautiful. Every morning I open my blinds he comes on the tree waiting for me to threw out peanuts for him & his family. I just enjoy watching all of nature grow before my eyes..."
