Weird and wonderful opuntia relative from northwest Argentina, this form looking for all the world like a stack of conifer cones... or various other things the imagination might conjure. Lovers of heat, drought and sun. Decent drainage, summer water, winter drought with frost hardiness to a little below 20F, USDA zone 9 or so. Otherwise fabo container plant to amuse friends and frighten neighbors.

We have both the "Pine Cone" (Opuntia diademata) and the "Paper Spined" (Syn: Opuntia turpinii and Opunti papyracantha). They've all been combined together in articulatus. So, when ordering please specify which one you want! Common names are fine since some of the variation is horticultural in origin anyway.
