I will melt into it (Opuntia humifusa) by 


Published in book

This photo is taken in Huntington Garden, Pasadena, LA,CA.
The Huntington Library is the jewel in Pasadena’s crown. The 207-acre hilltop estate was once home to industrialist and railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington (1850-1927), who bought books on the same massive scale on which he acquired businesses.
In the photo is Opuntia humifusa, prickly pear cactus, what I saw there. The Eastern Prickly Pear (Opuntia humifusa) is an under-appreciated native plant that has great landscape potential. One of the few native cacti found here in the Midwest, it’s a very low-growing plant with amazing yellow flowers up to 4″ across. The edible, pear-shaped fruit is red when ripe. In fact, Native American Indians ate almost every part of the plant, including the fruit, pads and flowers. Eastern Prickly Pear is most often found in dry sandy sites, but if you have dry clay it should also do well there.
