THE CACTUS MAN
AN OFFICIAL SOURCE FOR DOGTUFF™ TURF GRASS
One of the best RED flowering Opuntias from Claude Barr's collection. The rutilas, a diverse wild hybrid group from western Colorado make good garden plants. Slightly flattened, cylindrical stems and deep reddish-pink flowers in June. Compact habit. 6" high by 24" wide. Zone 4. Dry fruit. Sold as unrooted cutting.
The largest cactus species in Colorado (60" high by 72" wide). Reddish-rose flowers in July followed by green fruit. An important landscape plant. Suitable for culture in large pots. Thrives to zone 4. EASY to grow. Try it in a large pot on the patio if you don't have room in the garden. Sold as unrooted cuttings. Sold in 2 1/2 in pots.
Another choice selection of the Colorado Tree Cholla with vibrant violet-red blossoms in July. Discovered by Fred Becker in Colorado. 60" high by 72" wide. Zone 5. It is beautiful when combined with 'Taylor's Santa Fe Red', 'White Tower', and Sante Fe Cholla. Sold in 2.5" pots.
An apparent hybrid between basilaris or aurea with fragilis! The small, round, 2-3" wide pads have very short spines and are densely arranged. The petite, deep pinkish-red flowers in June are abundant. Beautiful in the rock garden or in containers. Opuntiad Dave Ferguson thinks it might be Opuntia polyacantha v. schweriniana ... still a mystery....
