Notes: An exceptional heat-loving dwarf hybrid with brilliant carmine colored flowers in a small padded, purple-skinned prickly pear. Thrives in a range from coast to inland deserts, and even into high altitude mountain areas! Loaded with spring blooms, the blue-grey purple-tinged foliage color intensifies to a vibrant purple in winter. Evergreen.
