Opuntia macrocentra is a very attractive blue pad cactus from New Mexico and adjacent Texas. The very round pads on a short upright stem are guarded by two inch long white and brown spines. Sometimes the long spines can be black. Opuntia macrocentra has 3-4 inch wide yellow flowers in the spring. This cactus love full sunlight and is cold hardy to at least 0 degrees F. You are selecting one pad. Beware of the barbed spines and glochids. Use paper not gloves when handling. Sections fall off almost to the touch; just plant them.
