Garden Makeovers:  Moon Garden

By Sharon
October 4, 2012

Did you ever think about giving your gardens a total makeover? My newest garden is probably ten years old and over the years it has had additions randomly tucked in here and there. I've been thinking about a change and I think I'll start with white. How about a Moon Garden where an old patchwork garden used to be?

Hello Sharon I have been reading your moon garden and in your pictures you have a picture next to a lillie you have a white flower to the right what is the name of that intriguing flower? It had me from hello love it. I am going to try again with Moonflowers and am hoping for it to luck out this year I had one in Austin and the smell was intoxicating. Look forward to your reply and good smelling night flowers.

Hi Sandra,

I was just reading your 'Ask a Question' thread about shade cloth and saw where @OldGardener had mentioned my name and here you are!

The flower you are referring to is the Moonflower as it opens. Moonflowers open in stages starting in late afternoon so that they are in full bloom about the same time it's dark. This image was probably taken just before sunset as the bloom unfurled.



Is this the one you meant?
Happy Gardening!

I was so excited when this bloom started opening, I think I sat in front of it for about 4 hours watching every move it made. Eventually every bud truly began to bloom and the entire bush was major magnificence in itself. Think I stayed up all night long just watching.

Thanks, OldGardener, I love it too.
