The "Special" Cactus

Note the spatulate form of the slabs of this variety of Burbank spineless cactus; also the remarkably compact space-conserving manner of growth. This cactus has no propensity to encroach on the territory of its neighbors; and it may therefore be planted in relatively close rows. The individual slabs are fairly thick and heavy.
