Description: These opened in the late afternoon and are said to be moth pollinated. We returned after dark hoping to catch the pollinators red-handed, but no luck. A person who works at the gardens said they are pollinated by Hawk moths, but that the moths hadn't yet appeared. Whether this is true, I don't know.
