WANTED: Opuntia - Cold Hardy and Prickless

I am looking for a pad or two of an outdoor cold hardy (zone 5) poke-less (spine-free and glochid-free) Opuntia. If you have available, please contact me, and I can send a list of succulents I have for trade.

It's probably not the right time of year, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Thank you.

if you find one, i would be interesting in hearing what it is. i have many varieties of opuntia and a handful of other cacti species that have made it through the winter / wet here in MI. i do have a locale of o humifusa that has very few spines and glochids, but it aint pricker free. if you are interested in that (its a typical yellow bloom) send me a reminder in the spring, right now it is shriveling the winter away under a foot or so of snow
