Beavertail has bright pink blooms from spring into summer. Insects such as butterflies and moths are very attracted to the blooms.
Obtain plants for your landscape by asking other gardeners for cuttings. Allow the cut end to callus by drying out for a few days before planting.
The pads and pears of the beavertail are edible and were used by Native Americans for a number of cure-alls. For recipes and a how-to, check out this University of Nevada article.
