Night Bloomers

Vespertine -- opening or blooming in the evening.
The white Crinum has buds! The crinum is a night bloomer, smells like vanilla.

Not only does the crinum have buds, the night blooming cereus has one as well. Other vespertine flowers include species petunias, citrina daylilies, stocks and nicotiana and daturas.
