There’s an unparalleled charm about gardens that dazzle and dance in the moon’s soft caress. This unique creation, known as a moon garden, is an amalgamation of blooms and foliage that come alive in the night, either illuminating, blossoming, or diffusing their aromatic scents. These gardens transform into the perfect spots for introspective, moonlit evenings.
True Blue Nursery, a sanctuary for gardening enthusiasts, stands as your gateway to this dreamy nighttime oasis. And for those inquiring minds – our summer collection is abundant and diverse, awaiting your selection!
Step 1: Pinpointing Your Moon Garden’s Locale
Choose a spot in your garden or yard that’s easily accessible and provides a panoramic view from your chosen nighttime vantage point. Ideally, this site should soak in the moon’s rays and have some protection from gusty winds. Fine-tune the garden’s size to align with your available space and aspirations.
Step 2: Embracing the Heart of the Moon Garden – Plant Selection
The essence of a moon garden is captured in plants that mirror the glow of moonlight. Those with silver or grayish leaves add a beautiful dimension to this lunar theme. Here are some choice picks from True Blue Nursery:
- Moonflower (Ipomoea alba): With evening’s arrival, this plant unfolds its luxurious white flowers.
- Night-Blooming Jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum): Come nightfall, this plant’s scent wafts through the garden, creating a sensory delight.
- Dusty Miller (Centaurea cineraria): Renowned for its silver-tinged foliage, it’s a quintessential addition to any moon garden.
- Evening Primrose (Oenothera): Sporting blooms in whites or mellow yellows, this plant thrives under the night sky.
- Night Phlox (Zaluzianskya ovata): Affectionately named “Midnight Candy,” its flowers enchant the air with their nocturnal fragrance.
- White Coral Bells (Heuchera sanguinea ‘Alba’): Its dreamy white blossoms and moonlit leaves bring an air of serenity.
Step 3: Introducing Enchanted Features
Amplify your moon garden’s allure with added elements. Consider tranquil water accents, such as a mirror-like pond or a serene fountain, both magnifying the moon’s beauty. Decorative additions, like statues kissed by moonlight or luminous garden spheres, can further enhance the mystical aura.
