Harrisia

Its name was chosen in honor of the Irish botanist William Harris. There are not many species belonging to this genus, and they are easily recognizable by their rather thin stems, furrowed by few ribs and well spaced spines, which allow to see the bright green body. The Harrisia tends to grow rapidly in height, and then transforms its erect shape, in nature, into a dense tangled mat with a very characteristic sprawling habit! An extremely popular feature is undoubtedly its large funnel-shaped nocturnal flower, which blooms in the evening and closes down at dawn: this is why, as many call it, it is a real "moonlight cactus"!
