Myrtillocactus geometrizans f. variegated

It is also commonly called "Our Father", "Blue Flame", "Bilberry Cactus", "Whortleberry Cactus", "Blue Candle" and "Blue Myrtle cactus". It is a columnar plant, covered with a white patina, which can branch out and take the shape of a candlestick. In nature it can reach up to 4 meters in height. This particular 'variegated' variant presents on its sky-blue stem, characterized by 5-8 ribs and sparse spines, more or less large and intense yellow spots, which make each plant unique and particular. It blooms from February to April, and its flowers are white and small in size. A curious fact: the fruits of Myrtillocactus are edible and resemble blueberries, a characteristic from which its name derives.
