Imagine sitting in your gazebo or settling on your bench and watching the stars come out while a gentle breeze blows away the heat of the day. As the night darkens, your flowers glisten with an otherworldly beauty.
The most popular night flowers are moon flowers. They are large, lustrous and white, making them easy to see at night.
The glory moon vine produces six-inch trumpet flowers that unfurl at sunset. The glory moon vine is an annual and each flower only lasts one evening.
The bush moon plant is also white with six-inch trumpet flowers that open at night. The bush moon plant is a perennial. Each individual flower lasts a night and part of the day.
Night-blooming jasmine will fill the dark with its wondrous bouquet.
Other night bloomers you might consider adding to your garden are the perennials four o’clocks and evening primrose.
Night phlox has a lovely almond-honey scent that is released in the evening.
A large, white, clay pot filled with cereus, a cactus with gorgeous huge white flowers, would be a nice addition to your garden. This plant’s flowers release an aromatic vanilla scent.
Any blooming white plant that doesn’t close at night can be added to a night garden. Lamb’s ear is nice because it has a silvery quality at night. And what about adding some white pumpkins to your garden for visual appeal?
