Pereskia grandiflora violacea

Common Name: Royal Queen

Pereskia grandiflora violacea, commonly known as Royal Queen. This medium-sized, evergreen shrub with clusters of orchid-like, purple flowers is actually in the cactus family, but you’d never know it! Looking more like a beautiful landscape shrub with glossy green leaves and hidden thorns, this water-wise specimen blooms all year long. What a great answer to our water crisis! Being colorful, stable and adaptable, this wonderful landscape shrub will truly add that majestic touch to your garden or design. Full sun to partial shade. Will do nicely with regular watering, but is equally tough in dry conditions. Tender to freezing temperatures. Partially deciduous in the winter, but keeps on flowering anyway!
