Cylindropuntia cholla (Chain link cholla) is a spiny shrubby or tree-like cactus, 0.5 to 3 meters high. It is a summer grower cactus that offers no cultivation difficulties. Its cylindrical spiny joints provide a striking accent for an otherwise dormant cactus garden.

Hardiness: It is a not very frost resistant cactus, hardy to -2° C (or less if very dry). However in cultivation it is better not to expose it to temperatures lower than -0° C.
USDA Zone 8-10. It can handle extremely high temperatures in summer.
Exposure: Outside full sun or afternoon shade, inside needs bright light, and some direct sun.
