This cactus is classified as a perennial and is from South America. It blooms a couple of times in the summer but this is the largest number of blooms that we have ever had. It is spectacular but sadly the blooms only last one day.

Beautiful plant! Does it survive your winters or do you need to bring it indoors?

Brownrexx, the flowers on my prickly pear cactus bloom only one day apiece, but they still put on a smashing display. What is the actual latin name of your cactus?

@Nan6b it is Echinopsis ancistrophora 'Dominos'
Common Name(s): Dominos Easter Lily, Easter Lily Cactus

I can't believe that I typed echinacea in the original title but I just fixed it to the correct name.
