Silver Torch Cactus

The Silver Torch Cactus is a medium to fast growing cactus. It produces multiple columns, reaching 18 inches to 10 feet in height. Proudly displaying many 3-inch long, red tubular flowers in late summer, it attracts humming birds. This cactus makes an attractive accent plant to your landscape or patio. Its silver colored spines bring an interesting contrast in color to the cactus garden.

It prefers free draining soils and strong sunlight. Does not tolerate high temperatures. In fact, it can withstand hard frosts down to 15 degrees F.
