Now that summer is just around the corner, you may be thinking of starting an outdoor garden. And, rightfully so — it’s definitely the perfect time to get planning.
But, what if I told you that you can actually plant flowers that only bloom at night? That means you can create a beautiful night garden instead of the typical one. Does that sound amazing or what?
Here are a few flowers you can add to your night garden.

Nothing much has been happening in the garden except potting up plants to move but my evening primrose flowered yesterday!

Just like the name of this pretty flower suggests, evening primrose flowers open at dusk, which is exactly the time you want to be sitting on your patio.
These lovely blooms usually have white or pink flowers that open up in the evening and stay open until after sunrise. On cloudy days, the blooms last longer.
3. Night Gladiolus

These light yellow flowers are not only pretty to look at but they also release a spicy fragrance. They can grow to about four feet in height.
Datura or Devil’s Trumpet have large, showy, trumpet-shaped blossoms that surely are a sight to see at night. They come in shades of pink, purple, yellow, or white.
5. Mock Orange
This flower is a favorite of many gardeners because of its sweet-scented blossoms. The aroma of these blooms will be irresistible at night sitting in your garden.
6. Night Blooming Jasmine
7. Casa Blanca Lily
These large blooms are a perfect addition to your night garden as they reflect the light of the moon. They’re really gorgeous to marvel at.
