Tell me more, tell me more

Summer days, drifting away but oh, those summer nights. When the sun goes down at the Huntsville Botanical Garden, Night Blooms presented by PNC Bank becomes a wonderland filled with the glow of artisan-made botanical lanterns.

During this one-mile journey, you’ll wind through larger-than-life blooms of orchids and poppies mingled with turtles and spiders–all lit from within. With full Technicolor details like these, I imagine it’s what wandering into a high-wattage Georgia O’Keefe painting would be like.

A Change of Pace

Night Blooms is a fresh way to get your steps in for the day—at night! This imaginative and artistic take on things you might find in the Garden by day takes on an entirely new look by the light of the moon.

For instance, in your own backyard you’re lucky to see some lightning bugs flitting about. But what if everything out there was lit like a lightning bug? Everything is when you step into the illuminated world of Night Blooms.
