Moon Gardens

Have you ever seen a moon garden in full bloom when the moon is full?? It is indeed a thing of beauty.

What’s a moon garden, you ask? Well, it simply is a garden planted with white or very light colored flowers. Those flowers absolutely shine in the glow of the moon. But even on moonless night the flowers pop in the darkness because of their color.

Plants with gray/silver colored leaves also glow in the moonlight.

As always, let me know if you’re interested in a plant that’s out of stock. If my suppliers have it back in stock, I can get it for you.

Happy diggin’ in the dirt!
