Hort Short: A Prickly Sight for Sore Eyes

This green, coral-esque tree has recently stirred up quite the buzz here at the garden. Cereus peruvianus ‘Monstrosus’ is a very unique cactus not only because of it’s size, but it’s rare and breath-taking flowers that are not long after followed by delicious fruit. The flowers of this particular cactus are very shy, and bloom for one night and one night only before closing up shop. So… How will anyone else get to see them if we’re closed during those late hours? Well, look no further all! Here at ABG, we’ve got your back so that you don’t have to miss a thing.

Apple Cactus or Curiosity Plant (a perfect name to go along with our current exhibit, The Curious Garden)
