Cold-hardy cactuses do exist. Chance, a professional gardener and member of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and Colorado Cactus and Succulent Society, provides descriptions of many species of cacti, succulents, and companion plants that can thrive in colder, wetter climates if one follows his cultural tips for enhancing the hardiness of drought-tolerant plants. Chance also covers container gardening and plant propagation from cuttings and seeds. The guide includes color photographs, online plant sources, and references.
