Cold hardy cacti resource

succulentlover(Zone 6, SE PA)June 6, 2007

Hi. I've been trying to find a place that sells cold hardy cacti. I had placed an order with a company in Canada that had a nice variety, but I have not heard back from them. Other than that place, I have not found any other places that have a decent selection. If anyone can give me some links it would be great! The plants I had ordered were:

Echinocereus reichenbachii v. albispinus

Echinocereus viridiflorus

Pediocactus simpsonii v. minor

Also, tho it is off topic, I had order a couple other plants that I have yet to find except on the same site as the hardy cacti.

The first one is Sedum sieboldii 'Mediovariegatum'. This plant has distinct blue and yellow varigated leaves. I found it listed as Sedum sieboldii f. variegatum on

The other plant, which I have absolutely fallen in love with is, Carduncellus pinnatus, which I beleive is a very low growing alpine thistle.

Thanks in advance for any help ^^

Good quality, in my experience, and many cactus are zone 4 hardy too.

Opuntia... pear cactus does well on my property here in the West Chester area. I have the yellow flowering variety and it grows best suspended from a stone wall but also survives well on the ground if it remains free from larger plants. I stuck a single pad eight feet up in a stone wall and it now touches ground after three years and stays green all winter with very little dye back. Quite edible too.
