Caption: Flowering cacti. Flowering beavertail cactus (Opuntia basilaris, lower left) and ocotillo or vine cactus (Fouquieria splendens, upper centre). The beavertail cactus is a low spreading plant found in deserts in parts of California, Utah and Arizona, USA. It is so-named as its stems resemble beavers' tails. It flowers between March and June. The ocotillo is not a cactus, but a deciduous, thorny shrub that grows in the deserts of the southern United States. It consists of many whip- like canes sprouting from a base. It can grow to be 4.5 metres in height and can survive at temperatures as low as 5 degrees Celsius. Photogr- aphed in Anza Borrego State Park, California.
