We are excitedly waiting for our Night Blooming Cereus buds to open. Early in the evening the buds open out into beautiful large cups about a foot long and have a mildly spicy fragrance. The Cereus was originally brought to Hawaii from Mexico in 1830 on the Brig Ivanhoe. It is widely known for the quarter-mile hedge it forms at the Punahou School in Honolulu. Hope to get a photo to post. This is going to be special.
