Bloom Night 2014 will be the most spectacular botanical event of the summer. Witness the simultaneous nighttime bloom of dozens of dazzling white, hand-sized Peniocereus greggii, the Queen of the Night. During this year’s Bloom Night we’re keeping the best parts of Bloom Nights past and adding a few new things, too. The Garden Bistro will be open and offering a special Bloom Night celebratory summer supper. What could be better than a delectable gourmet dinner under the stars on the patio of the Garden Bistro, followed by a leisurely nighttime stroll through our gardens, taking in the sight and scent of the cereus? As always you’ll be able to purchase sweet and cool ice cream and refreshing bottled water on our grounds. For those who have never witnessed the magic of these amazing Cinderella plants, Bloom Night happens sometime between May 25th and July 20th. Tohono Chul's trails are lined with hundreds of luminarias directing guests to the plants in bloom; don’t forget a flashlight and appropriate shoes for walking our desert. Flowers start opening around sunset and are fully opened and very fragrant by about 9 p.m. Admission is free to members and children under 12 and $5 for the general public.
