Description
This charming ornament, the latest addition to the Wildflower series of ornaments, showcases a flourishing prickly pear cactus in full bloom. The yellow, red, and orange flowers are typical of prickly pear cactus varieties found throughout Texas and grow atop the green cactus pads, also called “nopales” that multiply each year for up to a 20-year lifespan. Nopales are a common ingredient in Mexican dishes and remain a staple in the Tejano culture of Texas. The deep red fruit or “tuna” that grows alongside the flowers is also edible and has been a source of food for Native Americans for thousands of years. In 1995, the 74th Texas Legislature declared the prickly pear cactus to be the State Plant of Texas, stating, "…Rugged, versatile, and uniquely beautiful, the prickly pear cactus has made numerous contributions to the landscape, cuisine, and character of the Lone Star State, and thus it is singularly qualified to represent the indomitable and proud Texas spirit as an official state symbol…" Measuring at approximately 2 ¾ inches, this ornament features a 24K gold overlay, a gold ribbon for hanging, and makes a perfect gift in its specially designed velvet-lined box. Proceeds support the ongoing preservation and interpretation of the Texas Capitol as well as exhibitions and educational programming at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in the USA.
