    Description

Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa - Buckthorn Cholla

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

This a species of cholla (or prickly pear) which is found in the Southwestern states of the USA. It is a shrubby cactus which unlike the species of Opuntia has rounded joints with long spines and detachable sheaths. It reaches large shrub and even tree like dimensions where it is happy. It is found at altitudes of 1200 to 2300 metres and in Zones as cold as 5a, making it extremely hardy to temperatures as low as minus 25 Deg C (-15 Deg F), but only if completely dry at the roots.

It flowers in the spring, these flowers are wine red or, more rarely, yellow suffused with red (rather like a washed out version of the type) and are followed by edible fruits that ripen to a golden yellow, although the longer they stay on the plant (especially if they overwinter there) then they get dry. It is a fast growing cactus once it establishes and can easily be propagated either from seeds or from the joints which readily detach and equally readily root in any soil.

Often seen covered with snow in the winter, with no ill effects whatsoever, this is another candidate for growing cactus in a temperate garden.


Full instructions for growing this and all of the species I sell can be found by following the link on my 'ME' page..
