Tulip Prickly Pear
A large, shrubby cactus that can reach to about 2 m tall with much branched, flat, grayish or pale green shoots and yellow or orange flowers, native to the southwestern USA and northern Mexico at higher elevations. It can take severe drought and hard freezes and is suitable to USDA Zones 5 and above. It is one of the few hardy cacti that cope well with moisture and cold at the same time and therefore is particularly popular in temperate climates. The fruits are edible and popular for making jelly and jam.
