Silver Ball Cactus


Parodia scopa

Parodia scopa
Silver Ball Cactus

Small, globose to 4″ diameter with dense spines. Can grow tall, to 20″! But generally they stay pretty short. Moderate clumping, yellow flowers. Hardy to 25F. From Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.

It turns out the fruit is dehiscent. Nice to know! Not particularly unusual. But maybe you’ve learned a new word and concept today? Science!
