This is a begonia that I got from Claire F. a couple of years ago at our plant swap.  It has really done beautifully this year – maybe I finally found the “right” spot.  I bring the pot into the garage in the winter. Allison M

This is a close up of the flower – that is only open a few hours!  Look at the detail – beautiful, beautiful flower

Night Blooming Cereus
Queen of the Night - Deer-Horn Cactus

I started out with 18 buds but some fell off (plant is by a bird feeder so it is a great resting place for the birds!).   One night 7 blooms opened, and the next night the remaining 5 opened.  It takes less than 2 weeks from when the buds 1st appear to the night they bloom.. Allison M.

From Google: One of the strangest plants of the desert, the night blooming cereus, is a member of the cactus family that resembles nothing more than a dead bush most of the year. It is rarely seen in the wild because of its inconspicuousness. But for one midsummer's night each year, its exqusitely scented flower opens as night falls, then closes forever with the first rays of the morning sun.

From my garden. If you plant it, they will come! Betty D.
