Xeriscape Garden Art: Just Add Iron

Barrel Cactus as Garden ArtHere’s a cool idea for all you “pricklophobes” who hate handling and growing a barrel cactus but like the interesting form, texture, and blooms it can add to your xeriscape.  

I saw this clever barrel, made from rebar and fish hooks, at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum and fell in love with it!  Unfortunately, it didn’t make the trip home to MY garden.  Sigh…

I don’t know who the artist is, so I can’t give appropriate credit (I’ll find out).  But what a great way to add a no-maintenance, visually appealing, forever blooming barrel cactus to your landscape.
