Hi, I have a few pads of Opuntia macrorhiza var pottsii, they bloom red flowers for trade.

In return I'm looking for two pads of any of the follwing:
Opuntia aurea, Pink flowering form with yellow center
Opuntia basilaris var. brachyclada, pale-purple/pinkish flowers
Opuntia cymochila, peach flowers
Opuntia phaeacantha var. camanchica, magenta flowers
Opuntia polyacantha, orange flowers
Opuntia polyacantha var. erinacea, pale-red/pinkish flowers
Opuntia polyacantha var. hystricina, rose red flowers 'Roseiflora'
Opuntia polyacantha var. nicholii, orange flowers

I'm also interested in the following as well.
#231A Opuntia polyacantha
Graham Co., Kansas, sown 1991 seeds from Christa's Cactus Arizona,
#CH 1681 very good bloomer.
#11 Opuntia polyacantha ' Carmin ' South Dakota, Very hardy form.
Probably collected by Claude A. Barr!
#304A Opuntia polyacantha El Paso Co., Colorado.
This form has a very fantastic color.
#303A Opuntia polyacantha Wallace Co., Kansas
Grown in a unprotected bed, Sown 1992 seeds from Christa's Cactus #1529,
This one has white stamens
#30 Opuntia phaeacantha 'Rubra' ? Hardy in a protected bed.
#5 Opuntia phaeacantha var. camanchica f. albispina ?
Received as Opuntia polyacantha var. albispina
Very good bloomer if covered in winter, but will survive without protection.

Thanks, blackadder

I also have one pad of O. pycnantha, under the same trading terms.
