The Beavertail Cactus (Opuntia basilaris) is found in southwest USA, mostly in the Mojave and Colorado Deserts and also in northwest Mexico
This low, spreading cactus with short bristles grows on dry, rocky desert slopes. It grows 6 to 12 inches high and up to 6 feet wide. Brilliant red-to-lavender flowers 2 to 3 inches wide with many petals bloom March to June. The gray-green, jointed stems are wide and flat resembling the tail of a beaver.
