some of you may know this flower some im sure don't..
This majestic flower have so many names.
Queen of the night, Dutchman's Pipe, Midnight Bloom, etc.But to us in South East Asia there is a legend and myth behind this Bunga Bakawali name in Malay. However, it is called Epiphyllum Oxypetalum in Scientific terms. With an intoxicatingly extravagant fragrance, it will only bloom once, in the mysteriously unpredictable dark coldness of the night. A trait that makes this most rare flower only more obscured in Malay myths and superstitions. It started to bloom at 8.00 pm and fully bloom at 12.00 midnight.. after midnight it will slowly fading and totally close (dead) at 3 am.so far this year this is only the one in bloom.. big in size too actually its pure white but in my camera the Bakawali look a bit yellowish in some part.Hope you like this.
thanks for looking.
cheers, terry
