Never seen anything like it. One of the branches looks like the shape of clover. Do you know the name of the cactus?Kathy
Hi Kathy, I don't but I've asked a friend at the Desert Museum to see if she can identify this curious curly plant. I'll post the answer here.
Hi Kathy!One of the botany experts at the Desert Museum has identified this unusual specimen as "the crested form of Myrtillocactus geometrizans (candelabra cactus)." (:Dianne
Its folds and layers give it the beautiful and unusual shape we seem to admire.
