This species grows very well outdoors here in the Tucson area and is often used as a landscape plant around office buildings or in the gardens of private homes. Five foot or so tall plants usually will produce copious flowers and fruit. The following photos were taken by me at Bach's Cactus Nursery:

ripening fruit and unique "fruit husk" remains after ripe fruit falls to the ground -- almost like a second flower
