That's a brilliant bloom - does it get many blooms at once?

Nearly everyday since i have joined this site i have seen something new to amaze. This is one of the most unusual but lovely flowers i have seen.
Is this the equivalent of our passion fruit or nothing like it??

Great flower. Is it the plant that produces the pink Dragonfruits?

13 Oct, 2009


Wow....that is beautiful........I love it........

No. It should have many blooms...however, it is growing under the 80 foot/ 25 meters tall Araucaria heterophylla - Norfolk Island Pine. It's too shady to produce much flowers and any fruit.




It's nothing like a passion fruit. Its fruits are very strange looking...and the plant is a vining cactus. I have posted pics of dragon fruits growing around San Diego in the past. I'll repost another to show you what the fruit looks like.



The dragon fruit can be pink or red and even depends on the variety.

the flower is as amazing as the fruit. im sure it would like my new green house...;-))

I'm sure it would. They are very easy to grow.
My plant is severely neglected...receiving no water at all.

I have had the fruit, but never seen the plant. I had no idea the flowers were so amazing. I guess the fruit should have been a clue.

Yes, I like the fruit and the drink also.
