Cactus ID (From sh*t photo)

Question

I always see this cactus on my way home and it's always flowering and looks amazing!

I was wondering if someone might know what it is?

Sorry for the terrible photo quality :/

Thanks all! Much love

yeah, you'll have to get a better photo if you want an accurate ID. If you really want an ID, get a shots of the flower and the areoles... 

 

p.s when you say its "always flowering", do you really mean "always"? Like it flowers in winter also?

Every time a i walk past it, it seems to have a few new flowers on it. At least for the past 5-6 or so months.

Im sure "always" is an exaggeration!

There any many similar looking cacti in my area but this always gets my attention because its the only one i see flowering.

I'll take some pics tomorrow :)

See how the flowers in the first pic aren't hairy (covered in trichomes) that's how you know it isn't a Trichocereus which basically means 'hairy cactus' (referring to the flowers).

 

The thin-ish ribs will also tell you that it's a Cereus, a nice short-spine one.

This plant is quite beaten up, there are some in my area which are probably as tall as my house and almost as wide. Its crazy
