This pine is about 2 stories high, and way, way up in the top we watched the buds, 6 on one frond, and we have never seen that. Picture the above tree with the below blooms, 32 of them. below is photo I took in 07 with a flash light held by hubby at 4 AM
click on photo to see details of wonder
they bloom only in the darkness of night and when the sun comes up, they droop and die. One night of glory and no one to see them.
Each morning we go in the back yard at 4 am with the dogs and shine the flashlight up to see how many bloomed.
Friday AM there were 31 and Saturday another 20 plus. I am unalble to get photos to show the glorious way we feel when we stare up at these flowers.
They are 12 inches long and 7 to 10 inches wide at the end of the bloom, very large
Amazing bridal bouquet for a giant, since it is about 20 to 25 feet long
And way at the tip top of the tree 3 blooms, reaching for the stars at night.
We discovered this night bloomer in August of 2007, it had been there since 1989 when we moved in, but we never saw the blooms. to see the size of the blooms and how beautiful they are up close
