Opuntia rubescens is a nice tree cactus for larger cactus and succulent gardens. It is also a nice specimen plant with its flattened pads. It will form a trunk like a tree, but with unusual markings. An ascending spiral pattern of areoles along its trunk make for a delightful surprise. This opuntia can be grown from seed or leaf or stem cuttings. Allow cuttings to callus over before planting them.
