The Night-blooming Cereus plants in Sabino Canyon caught the scent and also bloomed on Saturday, 6/23/12. Fred Heath writes:
Upon hearing that they were blooming on Saturday evening [at Tohono Chul], I decided to go to Sabino on Sunday AM see if anything was happening there. Sure enough the plant under the mesquite right before the nature trail had 6 wonderful smelling flowers (see photos…I need a camera that can capture odors!). I checked the one at the start of Esperero Trail…..nothing happening, but the plant on the tram road median did have two flowers.
