A once a year event occurred on the night of June 16th 2010, when a bunch of Night-blooming Cereus flowers could be seen in full bloom in a garden at the intersection of Pitts Bay and Fairyland Road in Bermuda. Night-blooming cereus, also called Queen of the night, lunar flower, and moon flower are said to bloom on only one [max two] nights of the year, normally in May/June/July.
