Night-blooming cereus


Blooming in the front yard of an early 1900's house in a historic neighborhood in Tucson. Homeowner said it had been much bigger until the tree that sheltered it was cut down. Neghbors are taking cuttings to plant under their own yards to keep it going. They estimate the plant is about 100 years old.
