Opuntia ‘Fiesta’ Prickly Pear


Not quite ready

An exciting new flowering cactus!

Most of the “Prickly Pears” sporting intense, hot-pink colored flowers are low growing, often diminutive plants. It’s extremely unusual to find them on a robust, landscape shrub-cactus that becomes a real show stopper when in full bloom! ‘Fiesta’ is not only amazing in bloom, but it’s silvery spines practically “glow” when back lit by a low sun, or night lighting. To 2’ tall, and spreading up to 4’ , hardy to zero degrees. Once you’ve seen this bloom, you won’t be able to wait for the coming of each new spring season when it will once again explode in its brilliant splendor! Plant in drifts next to Opuntia ‘Pinta Rita’, or ‘Coomb’s Winter Glow’ for amazing visual excitement. Waterwise Botanicals® cultivar.
