Image 1 Image 2 Image 3

Also known as the Opuntia Erinacae Ursine. This very unique prickly pear is covered with white hair and matures to be 5 feet tall x 4 feet wide. The Snow White Prickly Pear cactus can tolerate moderately cold nights that get down to ten degrees. Fast grower!

Prickly Pear design and application suggestions:

Opuntias, the prickly pear family of cacti, can be used in many different ways. In the landscape, the prickly pear family can be used as a very nice contrast to other cacti and succulents. The rounded pads, beautiful flowers of yellow, orange, red and pink plus different pad colors and sizes offer distinguished contrast in the landscape or in a nice container. Some prickly pear species can be used as a succulent groundcover. Some prickly pears, like the Santa Rita “purple” prickly pear, are ideal as unique pieces interspersed throughout the landscape or a nice contrast to a group of cacti and succulents in pots. Prickly pears are also very forgiving. They will tolerate the hottest parts of your landscape and like it! The prickly pear family also thrives on very little water and can take very cold overnight temperatures.

Why purchase our Prickly Pear?

Our prickly pears are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. You will not see any evidence of pads getting skinny and reaching for light. The prickly pears present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your new prickly pear cacti and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

My Furry friends 😁👏👏👏

I recently received my first Snow White one year ago as a present from my son in Tucson.
All day sunlight gave it a surge of growth!!!
From 7” inches to over 3 FEET in one year.
I bought 2 more a month ago and already see the expansion 👏👍🏻👍🏻

I will send photos if you would like.
They are very unbelievably adaptable

Really Nice Plant

I was expecting one or two pads, and fairly small. I got sooo much more. For the price, I am just thrilled.
