Love, love, love the shape of those leaves, but oh my .... thorns??? Oooh, I detest thorny plants because it seems no matter how careful I try to be, they always seem to attack. Green Grin!

Lin, yes it can be a bit prickly to handle. Getting pups off of it is a challenge !

Oh it's not so bad... Nothing like a rose or citrus, those things can do actual damage!

Beautiful plants! I can't seem to get them through our winters here.
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
