Gigantic Night-Blooming Cactus Flower
June 23, 2012 4 Comments
The Night-Blooming Cereus Cactus is known as the Queen (or Princess)-of-the-Night. This particular variety is also known as snake vine cactus (Selenicereus pteranthus), and is native to Central America. Gardeners have traditionally held parties on summer evenings to celebrate the spectacular blooms. Each fragrant flower is only open for one night. This cactus is a delightful addition to our Florida garden.
