QUEEN OF THE NIGHT


QUEEN OF THE NIGHT


We have heard it said: the most beautiful flower in all the world is the Hylocereus – Queen of the Night.
For one night only, on a full moon lonely …
A great white beauty swoons – magnificence beyond all blooms …

A flower to take your breath away – that’s gone again before the day.

We have also heard it said: the most beautiful flower in all the world is the Nikolasola – Queen of the Lake.
For one night in spring, on a full moon with rings …
Her golden petals open – you can hold your breath and touch …
A silky glow so dazzling it can freeze the light … and cast a shadow on the Queen of the Night …
A flower to take your breath away – that’s gone again before the day.

Hylocereus *(hy-lo-cereus)
Nikolasola *(nik-ohla-sola)
