Beautiful Bloom!


I awoke one morning recently to find this beautiful bloom in my backyard. I was told the plant is called a Night Blooming Cereus.
This is one of my favorite vines that is in full bloom this time of year. It is often called Sky Flower or Bengal Clock Vine. It's scientific name is Thunbergia Grandiflora. It is pretty frost tender, but it comes back in the spring and grows VERY quickly. Font sizeFont size

  1. That's absolutely beautiful; I've never heard of it! You know I love things that bloom at night; I must be part vampire.
