I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea or Peniocereus taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. Photos are for reference only. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Periocereus

   Peniocereus greggii (The night-blooming cereus has sparse, angular, lead-gray, twiggy stems about 1/2 inch in diameter. Extremeley small spines grow along the 4 to 6 ribs of these woody stems. It can be erect or sprawling, reaching a length of up to 6 feet, but is usually half that length. This night blooming cereus has a tuberous, turnip-like root usually weighing 5 to 15 pounds (but in some specimens weighing over 100 pounds), which Native Americans used as a food source. These very fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers, which bloom for only one night in June or July, are up to 4 inches wide and as much as 8 inches long. The waxy, creamy-white, many-petaled flowers are followed by a red-orange, short-spined elliptical fruit about three inches long. Night-blooming cereus is popular in rock gardens and can be grown from stem cuttings. After the cut end is is allowed to heal for several weeks, it is planted in dry sand. Like all cactus, night-blooming cereus may be protected in certain desert areas. Once in a Bloom Fragrances has captured the essence of the elusive Queen of the Night cactus flower (night-blooming cereus) to create the inspired Desert Queen Fragrance. Few have ever seen this flower let alone experienced its intoxicating scent. Habitat: Desert flats and washes between 3000 and 5000 feet, often in the shade of desert shrubs like creosote.Range: Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts of southern Arizona, east to western Texas and south to northern Mexico. I cut them back about every two or three years. The stems on the plant offered have been cut back and will need to be cut back to ship.) 3 in stock @ $20.00 each

  Peniocereus rosei (One of the very few members of the Cacataceae family with a caudex. It was described by Jesús González Ortega in 1926, found in Mexico, growing on the higher mountain-sides´ well-drained grit. Some water in growth and lots of sun. It has big crčme and pink flowers, which only can been seen at night. It can both be reproduced by seeds and cuttings, but only the seedlings and the specially square "dropping-shots" will form a caudex, which by the way can grow to 20 centimetres in diameter. If it doesn't freeze down, the stems will reach 3 meters. Stem have a rosie color when grown in good light and a sweet smelling flower. I cut them back about every two or three years. The stems on the plants offered have been cut back and will need to be cut back to ship.) 4 in stock @ $20.00 each
