HAVE: Native zone 5 cactus

paulamom(z5 illinois)September 8, 2004

I have native zone 5 cactus to trade for spring beauties, bloodroot, trillium, wild ginger, or any kind of iris. This cactus is native to the sand counties of Wisconsin, but thrives in my Illinois clay soil. I have it on the south side of my house in the area where no rain hits the soil unless it is a driving rain from the south. It blooms in spring with hugh, clear yellow, cup-shaped flowers. Extremely easy to establish.

What color irises do you have? Are they siberian, German, or blue flag? What other items do you wish to trade?

I will work on getting photos. They are a low-growing, spreading cactus with large lobed "leaves". They have superfine prickles that are not obvious to the eye, but very obvious to the skin. They are reminiscent of prickly pear cactus.

Yes, they do look like those, although the blossoms are more yellow than they appear in the picture.
