Epiphyllum Show & Sale
Epiphyllums go largely unnoticed during much of the year, their unassuming, leaf-like stems biding time and gathering energy. But when spring arrives, an unforgettable show begins! In April and May, these tropical plants burst into their full glory, with large, jewel-toned blossoms that are anything but wallflowers.
The Safari Park's Epiphyllum House is a beautiful tribute to these surprising plants, created and maintained by dedicated volunteers of the San Diego Epiphyllum Society. It displays almost 600 plants, and with names like 'Sparkling Burgundy,' 'Candy Barr,' 'Ice Follies,' 'Obsidian Queen,' and 'Greek god,' how can you resist?
On May 4 and 5, the San Diego Epiphyllum Society will be available to answer questions while they sell Epiphyllum cuttings in the Park's Plant Trader gift shop. All proceeds from the sale go directly to maintaining the Epiphyllum collection at the Safari Park. Epiphyllums make a great gift for Mother's Day!
