WP 6668, our backyard railroad caboose, sits in a garden of succulents and cactus. In fact, we measure the growth of our cactus by how high on the caboose they rise. The Silver Torch (Cleistocactus Strausii) with its obscene pink flowers, and the Black Spined Aloe are particularly vigorous growers. I am probably going to take out one of the aloes before it overwhelms its spiny neighbors. It can go live on the river bank where size does not matter.
