Night Blooming Cereus

A rather awkward looking gangle of a plant, the night blooming cereus has a blossom that will take your breath away. They start to open around 9 PM and for about 3 hours slowly before your eyes reveal themselves. The flower will only last that one night, but your nose will hold its fragrance long past its few hours of glory. Here are a few snaps of our neighbor’s bloom from late summer.
