Some of the South American cacti are remarkably hardy. Here's a Maihuenia spp. (looks like M. poeppigii but I'm not absolutely sure) growing outdoors in a Calgary rock garden (zone 3):

Lori that does look exactly like what I have, and on the label is does say zone 3!! I love hardy succulents! How could I have lived so long not knowing about them Shrug! Rolling on the floor laughing It makes it so much easier to figure out a way to keep them dry than to move them in and out each winter and summer Thumbs down
Love your photo thank you!! Hurray!
