Opuntia basilaris

Opuntia basilaris has a large range, and shows expected local variability. The plant in picture grows near Wickenburg, AZ. The plants at this locality develop unusually large round pads, and often form large crawling-low bushes of 100 pads and more. You can easily count about 50 flower buds that the plant picture has produced this year.
