Night-Blooming Flowers For Your Garden
Night Bloom Water Lily
Water lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers in existance and they are a must-have in a night garden that has a pond or some kind of a water feature. They can be of different colors but white will stand out nicely against the dark water. Water lilies certainly require winerization, especially the tropical varieties but good news is that these plants are quite tough and there are hardy varieties that can be planted anywhere (a tub, a bucket) but surely for aesthetic purposes a beautiful stone container would be more preferable.
Fragrant Plantain Lily
Also known as Hosta, plantain lily is a shade-tolerant flower that has beautiful broad and often two-toned leaves and beautiful white flowers.
Tufted evening primrose
Gumbo lily has beautiful heart-shaped petals and short stems. This tufted evening primrose blooms in the dusk turning pink and wilting by morning. This summer flower is perfect for dry, sandy, rocky soils with good drainage. Its sweet and pleasant fragrance attracts hawk moths.
Fragrant jasmine has small beautiful flowers and counts around 200 varieties. The nigh-blooming beauty is Cestrum nocturnum that grows up to 13 feet tall and is an evergreen shrub, which produces small inedible (toxic) berries.
