Red, Pink, or Purple flowered, large padded Opuntia for zone 5/6

17 years ago

Please tell me where I could purchase pads/plants of winter hardy (zone 5/6 W. PA), Opuntia that have large pads, and flower in; red, pink or purple. I know they exist but are evidently rare. What is more commonly available in flower colors other than yellow, are the O. fragilis hybrids with the tiny pads. I have a yellow flowering Opuntia phaecantha var. major that has 12" pads, is super winter hardy, and blooms profusely, but in yellow. I am not knocking yellow flowers, which are beautiful, but would like to have other flower colors in my winter hardy cactus garden, too.

Thank you.
