NIGHT BLOOMING CEREUS

My friend Sharon has a beautiful and exotic plant in her garden room.  It only blooms once a year and only at night……the fragrant night blooming Cereus.

As  evening approaches a flower starts to appear.

It usually blooms in June, but here it is……late October……….and last night was an event.

At 10 pm Miss Cereus was beginning to open.

10:40pm………VOILA!   The bloom is about the size or a large saucer.  The scent will waft thought the entire house………and still linger on in the morning with the fragrance lasting for several days.

Sharon calls this event “NBC”………..and celebrates the blooming with bubbly!
