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.  The information that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Pereskia 'Pink Rose'.
