Queen of a night flowers bloomed again today on my roof top garden. This year there are 5 flowers on a single evening! Today was a pleasant rainy day and when I came back from classes, these special guests were waiting for me to begin a photo shoot session 🙂 The aroma of these flowers is intoxicating and hope you enjoy looking at these flowers as well.
Unlike regular plants, these flowers bud out of leaves directly and not from the stem. You can go through my previous posts on this night queen flowers here and here. If you wish to grow this plant at your place, feel free to ping me and I would be happy enough to distribute few of them. Ofcourse, you don’t need to pay me for that… I am just spreading the green love 🙂
@ Gopinath Kanagal…..Raat ki rani is another different plant which blooms only in night and the flowers are strongly scented.
@ Mohan …..Raat ki rani is called Queen of the night. This Plant is called Brahma Kamala.
Even I’ve got this in my garden.
Yeah, I figured it out later on Deepti. Thanks for your comment and getting more clarity.
