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..

Plants Admin Emeritus

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.
