A cacti and succulent garden can be both beautifully exotic as well as useful. For instance, Ocotillos, which produce many leaves and red-orange blossoms, can be used as a living fence.

To create such a fence, one needs to cut the canes, wire and plant these canes into the ground. Another popular fencing material is Lemaierocereus Marginatus or “Organ pipe cactus. which produces clusters of offshoots. When mature, the “Organ Pipe” creates tubular red flowers along its sides.
