Notify Ground Crew. It is also fragrant. I used to work 2nd shift, and I had NGC planted near my bedroom window. I would come home, open the window and the scent would waft in.

Adding it to my list. Thanks!

I guess I should have also specified I want AFFORDABLE nocturnals Hilarious! This one fits that category. Thumbs up I'll spend up to about $40 for the right plant, but when they're more than that I pretty much have to walk away from them.

LOVE that it's 6ft tall -- that means I could plant it under my bedroom window, too. Thumbs up

I don't know if I have any or not, don't pay that much attention but I have heard that Startle is nocturnal and I love it.

H. Citrina has been around for over 100 years. It is a pretty trumpet shaped flower which is fragrant.

Also Toltec Sundial.

I also have an unregistered spider seedling of Fred's that is nocturnal.

Non daylilies - Stemless Evening Primrose - but be careful, it is considered invasive in some locals. It isn't here because of my zone. Also Moonflowers, which are related to Morning Glorys.

I know, I just love it - it's even prettier in real life and doing just fine up here in the cold
