Story: “Red Dutchlady” is a type of echinopsis cactus which blooms once a year, only for the duration of nightfall. In fact, the flowers are at their peak beauty for an hour or two at most. A tremendous amount of energy is required and yet this species presents its secret and brilliant floral performance to no witness. It explodes with beauty but as the sun rises and winds pick up, its withered remains quickly blow away, leaving no trace that anything spectacular ever happened.
