PLANTING CACTI IN cold Germany? Most plant enthusiasts associate this with low-growing opuntias only. Being easy to propagate and resistant to the wet, cold, Central European winters, several species of this genus are widespread in German gardens, especially in the dry areas of Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt. On wall tops and in troughs, without any artificial watering, they withstand severest weather conditions.
