BEAVERTAIL CACTUS

A Beavertail Prickly Pear cactus can be found in the southwest part of the U.S. into northern Mexico. They grow in desert scrub, oak/pine, and pinyon/juniper areas below 6000 feet in elevation. They are low growing, usually spineless. The pink to rose colored flowers bloom in late winter and early spring. Here is one I found in Arizona. BEAVER TAIL PRICKLY PEAR-2
