I brought some Epiphyllum oxypetalum with me up here to Austin from Houston - they grew in profusion for years and bloomed sometimes up to 36 blooms on a plant. We had to leave town one weekend during the winter and a hard freeze destroyed the plants.

The flowers were beautiful - and they smelled wonderful - I would stay up at night so I could capture the blooms.

This is a shot of it I took over 4 years ago (where does the time fly). You notice it has the same pristeen white on the petals as yours does.
