Neutral palmbob On Sep 2, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

globoid to 5' columnar cactus from Chile... survives in Pasadena down into high 20s- gets a bit blanched in full sun and cold (normally a pale green, but outdoors more cream colored here). Protected plants make some of the most beautiful potted cacti there are... the creamy green colorations, topped with gold, are incredibly ornamental. Well grown plants easily win shows.

Regional...
