I can't remember the name of this succulent because it has more than five syllables. The plant, which we call "Minnie," blooms occasionally for just one night. The gorgeous bloom lasts into the morning before wilting when the sun gets hot.
We inherited Minnie from friends who hosted impromptu parties on Minnie's blooming nights. When they moved into a condominium, they passed Minnie on to us. We haven't continued the party tradition, but we should.
