Product description:


Mentioned throughout literature, the night-blooming cereus is also known as the moon flower or lunar flower. Native to North America, the plant grows from a single stem in the ground and appears almost dead-looking.

They bloom on just one or two nights of the year, typically around May 30th. The flowers generally stay open until the early morning hours, but then close up for another year, so catching a glimpse of one can be fleeting.

Here, artist Richard Fields captures three of these mysterious blooms as they're illuminated by a full moon, just before the midnight hour.
