The EPI flower, also known as queen of the night, blooms once or twice a year, usually at night. It has a glorious beauty and an amazing scent. Sadly it only lasts for a few hours before it withers and dies.
Like all things that are beautiful arround us, this flower is both haunting and captivating. Its beauty, like love, may be a passing dream, but its splendour remains in our hearts forever. The hope that such beauty or feeling may visit us again keeps our expectations alive. The plant grew from a cutting and took a year in my sunny window before it gave us this one flower. If you had this outdoor, in a sunny hot climate, it will give you a lot more.
