I have some from Michigan Zone 5. I would be willing to trade them for some other cactus cutting(s) or the like. Here's what the cuttings look like: http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j76/moosesinvade/Picture.jpg I think they're something like Beavertail Cactus, but I'm not 100% sure. They are Opuntia though, I believe.

I live in central Texas and have them in my front field. I am not sure of the variety. I think it is either OPhaecantha var major Engelm or O lindheimeri. I can get some other varietiies. :Like cows tougue( O lindheimeria var linguiformis) and a neddleless waxy one, and a large pad fluttery thing.The lastwo I don't think are native.
