In your garden: 6

The Night Blooming Cereus is a very awkward, gangly plant that may take several years before blooming ... but when it does it is worth the wait as the blossoms are spectacular. Buds begin to open rapidly at sunset and close the next morning as the sun rises. Flowers are the size of an adult hand.

Don Orban lives in the Lafayette Place neighborhood in Fort Wayne.
