Cylindropuntia is native to the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. Its name simply means cylindrical “opuntia” meaning stems. Formerly, this genus was known to be a subgenus of “Opuntia”. Cylindropuntia became a separate genus due to its cylindrical stems. In terms of physical appearance, this genus has barbed spines that strongly stick to skin or clothing. In broad daylight or even during the night, Cylindropuntia plants appear to be glowing due to their silver-to-gold body color. Currently, it has thirty-five subspecies.
