Cacti and succulents
Native to South America. Tall, treelike cactus, branching from base, can form bushes to 10 ft. tall with eventual spread of 15 ft. Striking bluish green color, especially when young; ribbed with scattered spines. Large white flowers—6–7 in. long, 5 in. across—open at night in late spring. Big, egg-shaped red fruits split open when fully ripe to reveal white pulp and black seeds. Striking outline; effective in the ground or in large containers. Protect from hard frosts. Tolerates much drought, but has a better appearance with some irrigation and fertilizer during hot, dry months. Propagated by large cuttings (2–6 ft. long) any time of year.
