Name: Opuntia imbricata
Why we love it: This hardy yet exotic-looking cactus grows into a large shrub in time. Rosy-purple flowers, followed by yellow fruits, appear in late spring once plants grow to about 60cm. This is a cold-tolerant cactus and hardy to zone 5. Height: 1.5M (5') Spread: 1.2M (4')
Light: This plant prefers full sun.
Water: Allow the plant to dry between watering. Do not overwater.
Pet Friendly? Opuntia are non-toxic but spines can be painful.
Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
