Opuntia basilaris 'Caudata'
Opuntia basilaris 'Caudata' is a select form of Opuntia basilaris ssp. brachyclada produced by Tom Jesch at Waterwise Botanicals. We are lucky enough to sell some clones from them. We have had this plant in our garden for 10 years, they have proven cold hardy taking -17F and -11F several times. Plants can get 12" tall and 2ft wide.
I do not guarantee these in a zone 5/6 because everyones growing conditions are different but this would be a good trial plant to grow in your cold outdoor garden. Try to plant outdoor 90 days before 1st hard freeze.
