Description

Family Cactaceae
Originating from Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Mexico

Looking too good to be true, the beautiful purple colouration of the steel blue pads changes throughout the year, becoming more pronounced in extremes of temperature. It bears large flowers that are a translucent golden yellow, appearing around the edges of the pads in summer. This is a tough and easy-to-grow plant in a large pot, in free draining compost, if watered and fed only when dry during the summer and very sparingly over winter.

It can be moved onto a sun-baked position on a patio for summer and returned to a frost-free conservatory for winter.

Height and spread after 5 – 10 years 1.5m x 1.5m
