You've Got to Love Epiphyllums

Epiphyllum Ber Tee. Cactus flowers are gorgeous, no doubt about it. Of course there is always that prickly issue of spines. Epiphyllums (a.k.a. jungle cactus), however, are largely spine free, once they get to blooming size. They are a little gangly and the snails do have a hankering for them. Still, they more then make up for any shortcomings with their huge, wonderful flowers and their ease of growth. This one, Epiphyllum Ber Tee, is one of my favorites!

That’s a gorgeous red [oh and thanks for the lesson about bird beaks :-)].
