The flowers of Braunsia apiculata grow solitary on short stalks. They have five unequal sepals; the outer two are flattened, the others have membranous margins.
The pink petals, slightly wider near their rounded tips, are white at the base. A cylindrical column of stamens and filamentous staminodes (sterile stamens lacking the yellow anthers of fully developed stamens), is erect in the flower centre. There is a ring of nectar glands in the base of the flower. Flower diameter is about 4 cm.
Flowering happens in late autumn and winter (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Smith, et al, 1998; www.cactus-art.biz).
