Opuntia ‘Burbank Spineless’

Who doesn’t love a cactus? While we all love cacti, no one likes to get spiked. Enter Opuntia ‘Burbank Spineless’.

Opuntia or Prickly Pear as they’re often known is so popular now, you see them popping up in gardens as well as inside peoples homes. This variety of Opuntia is a favourite of ours due to it being near spineless, drought tolerant and the instant impact it brings to any garden.

It’s best to position your Opuntia ‘Burbank Spineless’ in well-drained soil. If you’re potting it up ensure you use a pot with drainage holes and use a good quality cactus specific potting mix.

One of the coolest things about the Opuntia ‘Burbank Spineless’ is the off-shoots or ‘pups’ which begin to sprout as the plant grows.
