Heliocereus - 17 August 2011 - It will be done tomorrow morning. Night-blooming species are mostly white or white with pale yellow overcasts or traces of yellow in back petals. There are, however, a few species that have color in their flowers, notably the orange-red blooms of Nopalxochia ackermanii, the red Heliocereus aurantiacus, the scarlet Heliocereus cinnabarinus and the purplish-red Heliocereus speciosus. Night blooming Cereus is a beautifully delicate and lightly fragrant flower that only blooms once a year under the full moon in August. It's an amazing sight that takes your breath away.
