Opuntia imbricata
Common Name: Tree Cholla Family: Cactaceae (The Cactus Family)

Opuntia imbricata

Notes:
This is an extremely hardy and ornamental cholla cactus from the US and Mexico. The large, pink to purple flowers are 2.5” wide and will become a quick favourite of butterflies and hummingbirds. Provide sharp drainage and protection from winter rain -- scree gardens or under overhangs of the house both work well.
