Plant Your Own Magical Moon Garden With Flowers That Bloom At Night
The fact that flowers and certain plants can bloom at night is unknown to a lot of people. A moon garden is a good way to develop a deeper relationship with nature and to fill up your mornings with a beautiful fragrance that will help your peace of mind and will provide a better environment for you to plan your day and carry out your morning activities better.
When there are these plants in your house, their aromas would even help your sleep at night. What adds to their charm is the white colour, which makes them exude a beautiful glow under the moonlight that will calm you after a long day of work.
To take the moon theme up by a notch, plant your trees in a semi circle, so that when the crescent moon comes up, you will find a moon inside your home too. Find the plants that open in the dark and add foliage that is silver and blooms during the day to make it look even more beautiful.
Night blooming plants
Moonflower– The name itself suggests that this is a nigh blooming plant. The flower opens up at night, and fills the surroundings with a bit of a lemony scent and these flowers are completely shut off during the day. Some kinds of this climber plant get as long as 8 feet and the flowers opened in their full glory are 5”-6” in diameter.
Evening Primrose– These are pale pink in color and when they bloom, you guessed it, in the evening; they release a sweet smell that will fill up your senses.
Night Phlox– These little lovelies open up at the moment the dusk begins to set in and smell like vanilla.
