Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to Great Design Plant: Beavertail Prickly Pear Wows With Color
How to use it. Beavertail prickly pear is at home in a desert landscape, where its gray-blue pads can provide great color contrast when planted near plants with darker foliage. Pair it with desert marigold, globe mallow or Gooding’s verbena (Glandularia gooddingii) for a natural, colorful flower display in spring. Beavertail prickly pear can also be planted in re-created natural desert settings along with triangle-leaf bursage (Ambrosia deltoidea), saguaro cacti (Carnegiea gigantea) and cholla species.Use it in the outer areas of the landscape, where people won’t get accidentally stuck with the irritating bristles.Shown: Beavertail prickly pear growing in front of orange-flowering globe mallow (Sphaeralcea ambigua)
