Our Bugs, Birds and Butterfly Children’s Garden is home of many unusual plants. Directly across from the Serpent Sculpture is the Dragon Fruit plant, also known Pitaya or Strawberry Pear. Its botanical name is Hylocereus undulates, is in the cactus family and native to Central and South America. It produces an amazingly beautiful large white flower that only flowers at night. When this flower is fertilized by insects or by hand it produces Dragon Fruit. It is a very exotic looking fruit, very tasty and full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, as well as low in calories and fat. This plant is easy to grow, likes a sandy soil, full sun and likes to be kept slightly moist. It also requires support of a trellis or stake. Please enjoy the photos and if you would like some starter pieces, please contact me at:
