Flowering Matisse

My living Matisse Epiphyllum anguliger is flowering!

The blooms open at night and last only a day.  As if taking turns to shine, they are flowering one at a time.  As one fades, another opens.

  1. Awesome ~ you’ve captured a photo I have long wished to have. I have seen this flower once while in Taiwan and the story of its blooming for only one night before it perished matched their name for it “Queen of the Night”.
