Epiphyllum oxypetalum

Epiphyllum oxypetalum


Epiphyllum oxypetalum (Dutchman's Pipe, kardable, Night Queen or Nishagandhi or Gul-e-Bakawali) is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. It is also referred to as Night blooming Cereus and often confused with species of Selenicereus.


We call it "Wijaya Kusuma". These flowers always bloom in a middle of the night. So.. if you want to see this flower bloom you must stay awake until midnight :-)
