The cactus

The collection of cactus of the garden allows to get to know the diversity of the world of the cactus.

Echinocactus grusonii is probably one of the most known because of its globular shape scattered of spines which has the nickname of "mother-in-law cushion". The other cactus very familiar to the visitors is the Opuntia and in particular Opuntia Ficus usually called "prickly pear". Under the name of "nopal", the pre-Coloumbian gathered many Opuntias with pricly pear in the garden : O. mycrodasys, O. bergeriana... They took the pulp of the peickly pear without thorns and mixed it with honey to make some creams for the skin. 

You can admire also other kinds of plants such as the Neobuxmaunia Polylopha and the Trichocereus Pasacana with their large white flower.
