Western Prickly Pear Cactus 'Wildfire'

Opuntia woodsii hyb

Live Cuttings (5"-10" pads) - Cold Hardy -20F!

Western Prickly Pear Cactus 'Wildfire' (Opuntia woodsii hyb) is a rare hybrid prickly pear cactus growing in the high desert region of central Oregon. It is a unique hybrid that we think is a cross of two sub types of O. woodsii originally growing in the high elevations of southern Utah. It is has a symmetrical, upright and wide growing habit, and has extra large pads, eventually reaching the size of ping pong paddles! Springtime blooms display beautiful large multicolored flowers that turn a reddish and pinkish hue over a short time! This is one of the largest variety of opuntia we grow and has been growing completely unprotected for decades in the cold high desert region of central Oregon, zone 6b, repeatedly seeing temps below zero degrees F! These have been planted as far north as Canada surviving temps below -20 degrees F!! Planting instructions are included!
