Opuntia polyacantha is one of my favorite cacti. Big pads, lots of spines and big, beautiful flowers. It’s very hardy and looks good in the spring. Its also easy to start from seed. That’s how I started mine.
I ordered 1 pack of pink flower Opuntia polyacantha. After 3 years my patch in the sand garden had pink, raspberry, yellow and almost white flowers. So, there is a question, did I got mix of seeds or its just result of cross pollination?
Any way, I am very happy with the results, as are my customers.
