Popular with florists, this South African scrambling plant produces whorls of needle like 'leaves' technically they're modified bits of stem, called cladodes arranged around rather spiny stems. It needs to be kept frost-free in good light but not strong midday sun. In spring cut away any unwanted or dead branches. Growing from a vigourous tuberous rootstock, it will eventually fill a large pot, and looks good trained against a conservatory wall. It is now a weed in some parts of Australia, but is unlikely to cause a problem in the UK due to its sensitivity to frost.
