Bloom Watch 2013
Click on the image to the right and sign up for this year’s Bloom Watch. You’ll get regular email updates on the progress of the Blooms and then, when we’re sure the time is right, an announcement of Bloom Night itself, which is one night only from 6 p.m. to Midnight.
We have the world’s largest collection of Night Blooming Cereus, Peniocereus greggi, aptly nick-named “The Queen of the Night”. It creates an elusive flower that blooms en masse on only one night each year.
