I live in north west Wyoming, in a very arid community. However the temps can get as low as -20 in the winter with wind chills to -30. because it is an arid area most flowers and plants do not survive. there are yucca and prickly pear cactus that grow wild so I am wanting to know what other cactus and succulents would survive in these conditions, should I plant them in my flower beds.

RE: cactus

I suggest that you ask this on the Cactus and succulent discussion forum. You will probably get more reactions. People don't come here as much. Prickly pears are used as landscape . check out . They have a lot of varieties and will be open about the Zones that they are hardy too.

Leo Chance has writen a great book about all the cactus that are available for cold places.

Intermountain Cactus nursery lists their cactus by Zone so one can know what will work for you.
