Opuntia ‘Fiesta’

Common Name: Fiesta Prickly Pear

Opuntia ‘Fiesta’ or more commonly known as the Fiesta Prickly Pear. 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 its silvery spines practically “glow” when backlit by a low sun, or night lighting. To 2’ tall, and spreading out to 4’ wide, it is 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!
