I bought this from a nice lady that had many plants and cuttings sitting on a bench for sale.
I dont know what it is, but I think it is an Opuntia species.
The lady had the parrent plant there too, it had a trunk like base, and large pads. It isnt hardy in my zone.
I like the plant...whatever it is..

Taylor, Certain Opuntia are definately hardy in z5. If you're interested I'll get the name(s) the next time I'm at the Smith College Botanical Garden.
