Pereskia (Cactus)


It was named in honor of an important botanist, it is not easy to guess, that this plant belongs to the Cactaceae family as, due to its shrubby habit and inflorescences, it looks much more like some types of wild roses, hence the common name of "rose cactus". We can define it as a sort of connecting ring: on one hand, it has thin and woody stems, often climbing and with leaves similar to those of rose plants; on the other hand, tufts of sturdy thorns emerge along the stem like classic cacti have. This particular aspect makes it very popular for decorating both indoor and outdoor environments, giving a touch of color to your spaces with its flashy fragrant flowers, with a rose-like appearance.
