To sit, surrounded by comfy cushions, in the serenity of a moon garden is one of life’s little pleasures. The sights and sounds in this garden will fill your senses and if you look closely enough, you may even be lucky enough to spot some of the fascinating night pollinators. A moon garden, as its name suggests, is designed to be enjoyed by the light of the moon.
When planting out your moon garden choose plants that have white flowers and silver foliage. This colour combination will catch the moon light and create a beautiful mood in your garden. Some say the star shaped flowers of the moon garden reflect the stars in the night sky.
Great night flowering plants include Honeysuckle, Mock Orange, Moon Flower, Night Gladiolus Casablanca Lilies, Evening Primrose and Nicotiana. There are even some beautiful night flowering water lilies. The silver foliage plants include Lambs ears, Silver Sage, Silver Thyme and Dusty Millers.
So get planting, then gather up your cushions, find that special spot and let your moon garden take you away…. Tranquillity at its best!
