Do you know the species of this prickly pear? I love the red flower. Not one of my prickly pear species bear red flowers, and I've been looking for one!

Aiyana, I am so not a "proper" gardener and I am afraid I don't know. I am desperate to get my Master Gardener certification so I actually know what I am doing rather than just bluffing my way through. I do know that it is native to Mexico because a friend of mine said that they grow everywhere where she lived in the Mexican desert. Please let me know if you find out and I will learn something from an expert! It was tiny when I got it and is huge now so it obviously likes it here. :)
