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.
