This is a closeup of the flower of the non-fruit baring passion vine. Itmakes a wonderful long hedge and grows well here in Kamuela (when we havesome rain) Unfortunately there is no aroma to this beautiful flower. Jerry McGregor

This is a red Heliocereus blossom. Mine just bloomed today just as it usually does each year in Waikoloa. Blooms are up to 6 inches across The Night Blooming Cereus and Heliocereus are cactus cousins. Heliocereus blooms during the day. Both are cousins to the Dragon Fruit. Michael O’Brien
