Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus (Opuntia humifusa) is New England’s native - winter hardy cactus. You read that right, there’s a cactus plant more at home here than most Barrington lawns & gardens! Prickly Pear, a great source of food & protection for wildlife is the inspiration for Prickly Ed’s Cactus Patch 🌵.
Be sure to follow us on social media to see our cactus garden through the seasons. We’ll be adding several more winter hardy cactus varieties soon! Stay tuned…
The Eastern Prickly Pear (nickname Devil’s Tongue) is listed as Endangered in Massachusetts and of Special Concern in Connecticut.
