Pereskia 'Pink Rose' (Rose Cactus) - Pereskia is a primitive shrubby cactus that clambers to 6-12 feet tall with lush green leaves that flush reddish when first emerging and produces flowers that resemble wild roses. This plant is reportedly a hybrid of Pereskia bleo. The flowers on this cross are lavender. Long needle-like thorns grow from the leaf bases, so handle carefully ! It should be pruned after flowering to promote bushiness. Plant in full to part sun and give moderate to regular water. Will take a light frost though we have seen tip damage at 30 F. We grew this plant from 2006 until 2008.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Pereskia 'Pink Rose'.
