Cylindropuntia imbricata ‘Pinky’


Cylindropuntia imbricata ‘Pinky’

Cold hardy cactus. 

Its defences combine glochoids (small detachable hair like spines) and vicious sharp spines, which are barbed for good measure. From experience, the spines hurt more coming out of flesh than they do going in!

More compact than the typical Cylindropuntia imbricata species. In spring, the new growth emerges hot pink and loses the colour as it grows. Produces salmon coloured flowers starting when the plant is between 5 and 10 years old.

Grows best in a mostly mineral medium (i.e. lots of grit, sand gravel etc.) to assist in rapid drainage. And benefits from some rain protection if grown outdoors year round.

Please understand – Cylindropuntia have hateful spines, they are not a suitable cactus for children or for people who feel compelled to handle their plants more than is absolutely necessary.

Supplied in 9cm pots.
