    Description

Opuntia sulphurea - Sulphur Flowered Prickly Pear

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds of this prickly pear

A native of the high plains areas of Argentina, this is a sprawling prickly pear grown as much for its pads and spines as it is for its sulphur yellow flowers. The pads are up to 50 cm long and around 25 across and have, unusually for opuntia, heavy spines and pads with tubercles.  Up to eight spines arise from each of the areoles along with the more common glochids.  The flowers are produced in spring and summer and this plant will reverse its seasons when grown in the northern hemisphere.

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.  It is however very hardy once established taking drops to -15 Centigrade providing it is dry at the roots.  Tolerant of neglect, it will of course look best if well cared for and this will cause it to develop its beautiful pads to the best extent.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
