  • I present to you the "Peniocereus greggii" ... or the Queen of the Night. This particular flower only blooms ONE night of the year and is gone by the morning light. There is a noticeable smell of vanilla when you stand near one. They are beautiful beyond words. I was blessed to be able to witness this magic at Tohono Chul Park in Tucson, AZ.
