This powder blue wooly beauty is fairly frost hardy and stands our hot Arizona sun very well. Those are two traits you will not often use when discussing blue cereus. You can see some of the powdery material has been rubbed off by our handling of this plant so it must be handled very gingerly to retain its’ great color. It has an upright growth habit and the branches will remain fairly parallel to the main trunk. Unfortunately this is not a fast grower so bringing it to a specimen size will take years. However, the wooliness stays with the plant at all stages of life so it will always stand out in your collection. There is a mature plant growing in someone else’s yard here in Chandler and it is sensational with the bright blue stems and bright white wool. I am seldom jealous of other landscapes, but that plant definitely makes me envious.
