Shimmering Gold

Shimmering Gold


One of my favorite prickly pear blooms are the Opuntia polyacantha or Nebraska Orange. The shimmering gold blooms, with deep red centers fading to orange and then gold, contrast stunningly against the blue sky. Shades of pinks, reds and lime greens in the buds add to the color explosion we are gifted with. This incredibly hardy variety thrives in virtual all US gardens, not just the southwest as they are hardy to subzero. What a beautiful visual of beauty, strength, and resilience.
