I am wanting to plant a Moon garden this year. I need a little help please. I dont know alot about them. I dont know anyone with a moon garden or where to visit one. I am counting on you seasoned moon gardners to lead me in the right direction. Any info would be helpfull. The only night bloomers I have grown is the moon flower and some confused morning glories. Thanks in advance for your help. Donna

I recommend any nicotiana for starters. Datura would be a good one. ( very poisonous though )

Evening Primrose ( Oenothera ) opens its flowers at night. They are yellow. It can be weedy though so keep an eye on it.

By the way, there are tons of aquatic night bloomers for your pond. I'm not familiar with them but you can research some that might fit for you.

At the public library I found a great book with a title something like The Night Blooming Garden.
