A Beautiful Flowering Cactus

This is the cactus known as Opuntia basilaris, a low spreading form that makes a very striking contrast with the giant spineless opuntias in Mr. Burbank's garden. The present species is too small to be of any value as a forage plant, but its flowers give it high rank as a border plant for the garden.
