Cereus peruvianus

Here is another plant from Stanford Arizona Garden. It is a tall multi-stemmed Cereus with large white blooms. Flowers open at night and by the time I was there with my camera the blooms were closing. That half-closed flowers sill makes an intriguing shape against the plant ribbed stems.
Cereus perivianus is well known and easy plant, cultivated for over 100 years but better suited for outdoor collection were possible due to it's quick growing rate and size. After reaching the blooming size that is also quite large it is a reliable bloomer.
