Description Fine Print
 
This hybrid is a cross of the beavertail cactus (Opuntia basilaris) which often has bluish pads and the violet pricklypear (O. violacea or O. gosseliniana) which flushes with beautiful tones of lavender pink. The result is an intermediate, nearly spineless plant with large, pale bluish pads that flush with lavender pink. Flowers could be yellow or magenta. Our plant has not yet bloomed. Plant in full sun in sharply draining soil. Protect from winter rain on the West Coast. O. basilaris is hardy to zone 4 or 5 and O. violacea to zone 7 or 8. This hybrid will likely be intermediate.
