Arizona Queen of the Night

Arizona Queen of the Night, photographed by Carl Hankwitz, early on the morning of June 4, 2008, in the Dos Lagos sub-division on Dove Mountain. Typically all the plants in one area will open at one time. Filling the air with a heavy perfume, they attract large numbers of pollinating insects. The flowers close soon after dawn and do not reopen the next night. The flower produces a large red fruit that is also sweet and edible. Most flowers only bloom one night a year. What a wonderful experience!
