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.Β BEAVER TAIL PRICKLY PEAR-2

  2. I love the pretty pink rose which is set off so beautifully against the green cactus. Thanks for sharing! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is a lighthearted one about cacti in case you have time to look? Have a sunny day, Sam πŸ™‚
