Another Day in the Garden

Epiphllym hookeri. Also know as Epiphyllum phyllanthus var. hookeri or Cereus hookeri. I found this blooming in the yard last weekend. It had been mislabed as a hybrid. The flower lasted until about 10a.m. When the weather got hot and dry, the flower quickly faded; however, while it lasted, it was positively glorious!
