Cylindropuntia imbricata

This is the habitat of the C. imbricata found near Hovenweep National Monument.

Cylindropuntia imbricata

These five foot tall plants at the same site as the other plants shown on this website, have a tree-like, upright growth form with erect stems and a very thick lower main trunk, thus making them very similar to the C. imbricata known in New Mexico and eastern Colorado and not similar to the hybrids.
