Description Fine Print
 
We've lost the name of this beautiful Opuntia or pricklypear so we call it "Pink and Blue" though it could be 'Dark Knight'. If you're an expert and recognize it, let us know! It has pink flowers and beautiful bluish pads that flush with gorgeous purple tones in winter and under stress. The spines are long and burgundy or white. Plant in full sun in sharply draining soil. Protect from winter rain on the West Coast. We're just guessing at zone 5 hardy.
