These appears to be larger than Christmas cactus but I never see these on sale in box stores.

I also bought mums.

The cactus looks like some sort of epiphyllum.

I second epiphyllum. Color and time of day in the pic tell me it's a hybrid.
I'm jealous of those blooms, I purchased one in bud, but the buds fell off. Probably won't get to see what colors the flowers are until next year.

I third Epi.

Juju.. Your Mums are amazing. Unique. Where did you find them?
Is there a label w/name?

I too love Mums, but here in IL, they sell the same, old types.
I once had Football Mums, but they died after 2-3 yrs.

Yes it is indeed an Epiphyllum...also known as jungle cactus. They are a bit more difficult, and the foliage is a larger and a bit untidy, so they are not as common as the smaller holiday cactus. But of course, the bloom is much more spectacular.
