z4 plant suggestions, newbie!

DanTheMan14(z4 MT)August 8, 2003

I have a lovely spot behind my waterfall that i would love to turn into a lovely moon garden, yet i am at lost for plants. I know they must be white or pink, and i know many plants that have flowers that stay open all night, but i am looing for the ones that only bloom at night. Any and all plant suggestions are highly appreciated. Dan

I don't know about all night blooming plants, but I sure love my Moon Garden!All my flowers are blooming still at night. I have (my favorite!) Datura-downy thorn-apple that is about 3 to 4 ft tall with very large white trumpet flowers with just a tinge of lavender at the edges. And what a scent! Also,pink and white Nicotiana, petunias, asiatic lilies, Casa Blanca oriental lilies, Borage Alba, with their darling nodding heads, sweet alyssum, all white impatiens in the shadier parts and I'm still waitng on the white gladiolas. Oh ya, all white snapdragons too.Just fabulous!
