Our first, smallest, and most adorable plant, the allison cactus.
The allison cactus is a succulent plant that looks like a small, squat, white and red-and-black allison. Unlike the allison bush which grows upwards and out of the ground, the allison cactus sits on the ground and grows upwards and out of it. The reason the allison cactus grows up is because it’s a climbing plant. They also grow in a variety of shapes, including a very interesting three-pronged shape.
The allison cactus is the fourth member of the genus allisonia, and it’s the most common one. The species is named after the allison bush which grows up out of the ground, but the allison cactus has the smallest leaves of all the species in the genus. It’s also the one with the most petals, and the most leaves per petal.
The allison cactus is native to Mexico and is found in the lower elevations of the Sonoran Desert. It thrives in a variety of climates, including the hot, dry conditions of the deserts, and it is the only member of its genus that can tolerate saltwater. It is also the only member of its genus that is not found in the rainforests of the southwestern United States.
The allison cactus may not be a popular garden plant. But if you’re willing to forgo a few pruning and weeding chores, it can grow to be quite pretty. Allison cactus can reach 4 to 6 feet tall, and the leaves are quite large, with a range of colors. Although the flowers are not as showy, they are a great way to add color to your patio.
I grew up in a saltwater area, and I remember all the allison cacti. They were always the first thing to spring up in a new place, and they were always beautiful. They were a sign of a good beginning.
While the garden-variety allison cactus is definitely more showy than the garden-variety alligator cactus, they grow in the same area of the yard. The alligator cactus are a little more prolific, but most are a little smaller than the garden allison cactus.
But allison cacti are different. Allison cacti are generally a foot or so wide, and their leaves are a bright red. They grow in clumps, mostly in the same place in the yard, but they do not bloom throughout the summer. Allison cacti are more of a challenge because when you bend over and put your hands in the ground, your fingers come up with a red cactus.
I’ve had just about every garden variety cactus in my yard. I’m constantly changing them because I like the size of them, the shape of them, and the way they look in the fall. But I’ve always just assumed that since the cacti don’t bloom, they must be dead. They’re not. I can bend over and touch my hands to the ground as though they were cacti which means they must still be alive.
That last part is kind of a weird one to type. I’m not sure if cacti live or dying, but all I can say is that I hope they are alive and alive now. We’ve all had the experience of walking down the street and seeing one of your plants die. You’re probably so close to it that you’re just praying it doesn’t get hurt. But it does.
