Hard-to-find purple Santa Rita 'Baby' dwarf cactus. Purple prickly pear cactus.
The pads turn deep purple in cold and with increased sun exposure.
Dwarf variety of Opuntia 'Santa Rita', gets 2' tall by 2-3' wide. It will stay even smaller if kept in a pot. Flowers and fruits in Spring / Summer.
You will receive the plant pictured or one almost identical. It is a rooted, well-established cactus currently growing in a 2" container. This cactus ships bare root.
Cactus should be repotted on a warm day, let the roots settle for a day or two in the shade before watering and moving to more sun.
Handling tips: Wet the pad before planting (keeps the tiny hair-like prickers from flying) and use kitchen tongs - with rubber covers over the tips - to handle the cactus without scarring them while repotting.
