This is a "Night Blooming Cereus." It is on a cactus vine (see SBS) and only blooms at night, and only on ONE night per year! The next day, they are all wilted and gone. The blossom is about 8 inches (20 cm) across. (5 years and 1187 days ago)

One night per year? A truly one-night-stand

Beautiful photo ... the story reminded me of the movie Dennis the Menace, with Mr. Wilson and his flower ...
