This Mickey Mouse cactus is a less spiky version of the common prickly pear cactus and is safe to plant anywhere you like. It loves the sun, thrives with very little water, and can grow quite large, to over 2 metres. The fruit it produces is edible and tastes like a cross between bubble gum and watermelon!
This cactus has a strong garden personality and we love it planted in the ground or in feature pots, as it always makes a statement.
Makes the best hero pot specimen or in a sunny garden spot for a little drama.
Loves full sun
Minimal water required
