Thanks for posting your list. After Christmas I hope to have more time to dream about an evening/fragrant garden. You have given some good places to find inspiration.

I just came across this forum, and I must add to your list "The Evening Garden: Flowers and Fragrance from Dusk Till Dawn" by Peter Loewer. Published in 1993 by Macmillan. It is my favorite garden book, ever---filled with the author's drawings and poetry along with his information about plants I never knew about. At the time he was living in New York state but I think now he is in North Carolina.
The Beauty of the Night; Night Fragrance and Night-Fragrant Flowers; Night-Fragrant Orchids; Night-Fragrant Bromeliads; Annuals and Perennials for the Evening Garden; Night-Blooming Daylilies; Evening Primroses and Other Nocturnal Wildflowers; Water Gardens and Water Lilies of the Evening; Night-Blooming Cactuses; Night-blooming Tropical Vines and Trees; Plants that Look Like They Should Bloom at Night; The Moonlight Garden; Fireflies and Glowworms; Lighting for the Evening Garden.
Good luck finding a copy. I treasure mine.
