Captain Rick: This Peruvian Apple Cactus flower puts on a magnificent show as it comes to life in my Gilbert Arizona Oasis.

The Cereus Peruvianus (Peruvian Apple) Cactus blooms at night with gigantic pearl white flowers a half foot in diameter.
It is one of the worlds most amazing flowers of beauty.
This flower lingers into the early morning hours. By midday the flower closes forever.
It is such a shame that such awesome beauty lasts only a few hours.
Those lucky enough to catch a glimpse are truly fortunate.
I consider myself very fortunate as this cactus grows in my Gilbert Arizona Oasis and puts on a magnificent show many days of the year.
