Beavertail Cactus Ceramic Mug

Your morning coffee will be a work of art with this ceramic mug, offered in both 11-ounce and 15-ounce sizes. This sturdy mug is glossy white with a vivid print of a beavertail cactus (Opuntia basilaris) painted by botanical artist A.R. Valentien.

The flowers of the beavertail cactus get their vivid colors from a type of pigment known to only a few plant families. Although this cactus’ lack of spines give it a benign look, the cactus is well armored: thousands of hairlike spines—called glochids—appear in circular patches on the pale blue-green pads.
