Cactus – Cereus jamacaru – Botanical illustration

Ink sketch and watercolour wash on Bockingford 300gsm – 8″ × 12″ – original available
.
Cereus jamacaru (Queen of the Night, Nagblom)
Classification: Cactaceae
Incorrectly referred to as Cereus peruvianus in South Africa.
.
The Peruvian Apple Cactus, Cereus repandus, is a large, erect, thorny columnar cactus found in South America as well as the nearby ABC Islands of the Dutch Caribbean. It is also known as Giant Club Cactus, Hedge Cactus, cadushi and kayush. With an often tree-like appearance, the Peruvian Apple Cactus’ cylindrical grey-green to blue stems can reach 10 meters (33 ft) in height and 10-20 cm in diameter. The nocturnal flowers remain open for only one night. Unfortunately this plant has been declared an unwanted “invader” in South Africa due to it’s fast-spreading habit.
