The night-blooming cereus (sometimes called Queen of the Night) is a type of cactus that grows in trees from Arizona to Mexico. Their extravagant and fragrant flowers bloom once a year, and only at night.
You may have seen them around town, as they have long beard-like roots that hang down from the trees that they entwine themselves around.
Locals have been known to have small parties in tribute to the blooms but now, because of social media, some of the night-blooming flower fans have banded together to create a Facebook page and a crowd-sourced map of all of the cactus locations in town. To add locations to the map, click HERE.
If you happen to snap any photos of the beautiful blooms over the next week, be sure to tag us in your photo (@orlandobungalower)!
