We had these labeled as O. Cacanapa Ellisiana. However, it is now thought that that is perhaps incorrect labeling. But who knows? Labeling cactus can be a tricky endeavor. —So we are now just referring to them as thornless prickly pears.
These Opuntia cacanapa ‘Ellisiana’ plants may or may not be rooted at the time of your purchase. They ship bare root - no pot is included. Your cactus will be similar to the O. cacanapa in the 6” black pot.
O. cacanapa ‘Ellisiana’ makes a wonderful addition to many home landscapes, being that they are spineless and have very few glochids. My experience is they are hardy to 22-25F
