It has a drooping and bushy shape and can grow up to 2 meters in length. The cylindrical stems of 3-4 cm in diameter are covered with soft, slightly prickly golden yellow thorns.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to types of soil as long as it is not calcareous and well drained with good organic substance content. Watering in winter must be very limited, while in spring-summer it will be carried out regularly, waiting for the earth to dry between one administration and another. However, it resists drought well. It prefers an exposure in full sun or only partially shaded. Due to its trailing development it is suitable for being grown both in suspended pots and in small pockets of earth on dry stone walls or rock gardens. Partially rustic species, it resists short frosts down to -2°/-4°C. In case of strong and persistent frosts, keep the plant sheltered during the coldest periods to ensure its survival.
