Description Fine Print
 
Opuntia 'Baby Rita' is a stunning hybrid between the Santa Rita prickly pear, O. santa-rita, and the beavertail cactus, O. basilaris, and likely one of the most beautiful of the cold hardy prickly pears. It is a compact plant with four inch long, blue-green pads that take on glowing tones of pinkish purple with heat stress in summer and cool temperatures in winter. The flowers are multi-coloured in tones of apricot, copper, and glowing pink. Plant in full sun in sharply draining soil.
