Tree Cholla is 6 ft. tall, often as broad. A spiny guardian for any gate and for many birds' nests (the curved bill thrasher, cactus wren...). Big purple-red flowers are jewels of summer. Fruits are edible, if dry, and the woody skeleton is ornamental. Needs very warm soils to germinate. Zones 5-9.
