The Pitaya flower is a cactus flower of the genus Hylocereus. Actually pitaya is the fruit. This fruit is known under the name dragon fruit too. These plants are native to Mexico and Central and South America. The fruits are eaten raw without skin, just the flesh inside. It has small seeds similar to kiwi.

When someone say word summer you will imagine sun, watter, etc. For me, the first conjunction with the summer, is the smell of phlox flowers and apricots. There is about 67 different species of this flower out there. Some of them are few centimeters long and some are about one meter long. Which species you put into your garden depends on your preferences and the location but without a doubt phloxes should have permanent placement in your garden. Phlox can have purple, pink, violet, white or yellow color and should be planted on partial sun location with well-drained soil. Whichever species you choose, its smell is irresistible.
