A rare, crested specimen, Opuntia cylindrica cristata ‘Emerald Idol’ forms a labyrinth of curving, undulating stems in a bold green hue. A line of creamy wool tracing the uppermost margins of the winding leaves gives way to a profusion of short, tan spines. Resulting from a mutation in the apical meristem, or growth center, or the plant, this bizarre form makes ‘Emerald Idol’ an eye-catching, must-have addition to even the most comprehensive succulent and cacti collection!
