Fleeting flower

Here is a picture of my cactus flower which only lasted a day.  It had a slight fragrance.  Does anyone have more details on the plant or flower?  I am interested to know if it is indigenous.

Hey Helen,
Bad news I’m afraid – as beautiful as it is, its not indigenous. In fact, its actually a category 1 invader! Its from South America – Cereus peruviana. Beautiful flowers though!
