Description

RED CACTUS FLOWERS, is an original oil painting of a plant that is common in the desert areas of many states....when in bloom they light up the desert with color...this plant if a prickley pear cactus.
Prickley Pear Cactus, is an original oil painting by Janis Tafoya,of a cactus in bloom..these grow in the deserts of the Southwest,
Like other cactus, most prickly pears and chollas have large spines -- actually modified leaves -- growing from tubercles -- small, wart-like projections -- on their stems. But members of the Opuntia genus are unique because of their clusters of fine, tiny, barbed spines called glochids. Found just above the cluster of regular spines, glochids are yellow or red in color and detach easily from the pads. Glochids are often difficult to see and more difficult to remove, once lodged in the skin.
The fruits of most prickly pears are edible and sold in stores under the name "tuna." Prickly pear branches (the pads) are also cooked and eaten as a vegetable.
Range & Habitat
Prickly pear cactus are found in all of the deserts of the American Southwest, with different species having adapted to different locale and elevation ranges. Most require course, well-drained soil in dry, rocky flats or slopes. But some prefer mountain pinyon/juniper forests, while others require steep, rocky slopes in mountain foothills. What is that white stuff on my cactus? The cochineal covers much of the lower elevations in the western United States and Mexico. It feeds almost solely on the pads of selected prickly pear cacti species.

Come visit the Southwest, the desert in beautiful when in bloom and there are many more varities of cactus, not just the prickley pear. There are many
wonders in the Southwest of the United States...
