In other words a hedgehog cactus with orange flowers. This one is blooming in our front yard right now.

How do you keep the weeds out of it?

We created a genetically modified sentient, herbivorous version. It eats the weeds.

You didn't say you were looking for sense.

The cacti grow as one big clump No place for the weeds to grow.
