Cereus Desert Flower “Queen of the Night”

The nightblooming cereus is also known as the lunar flower, moon flower and luna  flower. This plant is native to elusive cactus flower native to the deserts of the American Southwest, Texas and Mexico.  The plant grows as a thin, almost dead looking stick from a single stem in the ground.  The Cinderella-like cactus looks like a dead stick most of the year but transforms in the summer by blooming on one night only, with many plants in an area blooming on the same night.

They bloom just on one or two nights of the year–typically around May 30th. Beneath the ground is a large tuber–often the size of a watermelon–that was eaten by Indians and early settlers because of its nutritious content.  Pack rats often eat these blossoms before morning, so catching a glimpse of them can be fleeting. They often stay open until the early morning hours, but then close up for another year.

Common Names:

Queen of the Night, Night-blooming Cereus, Large-flowering Cactus, Sweet-scented Cactus, Vanilla Cactus, Large Blooming Cereus, Large flowered torch thistle, Large-flowered Night Cactus
