Another great habitat plant due to its prickly nature. Species of small birds will seek shelter in the plant while foraging for insects it attracts. Species of Praying mantids have been observed specifically choosing this plant to hunt from!
Can be shaped from a young age (but wear gloves!)
An undemanding plant that thrives with frequent watering in a well-drained position. Thrives in an area of morning sun and afternoon shade within the garden situation. Avoid high traffic areas both for its prickly nature.
