When someone mentions cactus, I bet most of you would first think of Prickly Pear. It is one of the most distinctive desert plants, and grows in a wide range of locations, but is typically considered a hot desert dweller.

While our climate is considered a high desert, it might be surprising to know that many prickly pear varieties will not only survive in our four season climate, but truly thrive.
