Prickly Pear – in Minnesota

Minnesota hardy Prickly Pear

We have had a prickly pear cactus planted here in our display garden for over ten years – and it is still going strong, has grown quite large and is more beautiful with each passing year.

We get asked each year for a Minnesota hardy cactus – or get comments on “a cactus cannot possibly grow in Minnesota”.  Stop in soon as our Prickly Pear is in bloom!  A must see!

We have taken cuttings from our parent plant and have a limited amount of plants available.  You should have an area with full sun that is well drained.   You will find that our Minnesota prickly pear will be a tough plant and a focal point in your garden!
