Moon gardens decorated with bright white flowers

In western Texas, August nights invite us to spend the night outside in the dark. As darkness falls in our gardens, many lunar gardens with white flowers become brighter in the moonlight.

Moon gardens, known as white gardens or night gardens, are adorned with flowers that glow in the moonlight. The majestic white flowers stand out in the garden, and fragrant ground cover covers Paradise with gentle waves.

Flowers create a lunar garden; Some are bright, shiny, and some are fragrant. Height and size assignments include interest. Long flowers bloom in the evening breeze, and short flowers bloom the garden.


Flowering shrubs create a lunar garden background:

• Crepe myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica) white with green leaves – Natchez and Acoma; Burgundy-black leaf with ‘black diamond pure white’. Reach 10 feet.

• Rose (Rosa SP), roses need support, can be trained into columns – ‘Sombreuil’, ‘Clotilde Soupert’, ‘Lamarque’, ‘Cherokee’, ‘Ballerina’, ‘Sea Foam’ and ‘Prosperity’.

• Sharon Rose (Hibiscus Syriac). ‘White Chiffon’ and ‘Diana’, pure white flowers remain open at night – ideal for lunar gardens. Reach 10 feet.
