What is Candle Cactus

The Candle Cactus, also known as the Blue Candle Cactus or Myrtillocactus geometrizans, is a perennial succulent well-suited to USDA hardiness zones 9 through 11. This fast-growing cactus can make a dramatic focal point in landscapes due to its attractive shape, and it matures to a height between 13 and 16 inches. It blooms in the spring, producing creamy yellow to white flowers that darken before fading​​.

Care for the Candle Cactus includes avoiding direct sun when young to prevent burning, moving it to full sun as it matures, and providing slightly acidic, well-draining, sandy soil. It is drought-resistant and should only be watered when the soil has completely dried out, with reduced watering in the winter during dormancy​​.
