Often heavily scented and seeming to glow night blooming plants extend your enjoyment of the garden well into the moonlight hours. In addition to ghost-pale herbs, silver foliage and popular white flowers such as moonflower, try yellow night blooming plants. Be sure to locate your night garden near a window or an outdoor seating area to enjoy its enchantment.
Lemon Lily (Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus)
As its name says, these plants are showy lemon-colored lily that open and release its fragrance to steal the evening show.
Citron Daylily (Hemerocallis citrina)
Scatter these playful sunny night bloomers cheerfully amid other tall plants in an evening border, or locate a patch near a bedroom window so that you may enjoy them as you unwind.
Flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana alata)
Night blooming flowering tobacco is commonly white, but yellow varieties are not difficult to come by. Cone-shaped flowers drape beautifully over the edges of pots, planters and rock walls.
Four O'Clocks (Mirabilis jalapa)
Named for their tea-time debut, Four O'Clocks are available in a variety of colors. Finding an all-yellow packet can be challenging, but you'll have no trouble procuring a mix that also includes small, sweet blossoms in shades of pink, red and white. Four O'Clocks germinate easily and may self-seed for a repeat show the following year.
Evening Primrose (Oenothera)
Bright yellow blossoms on tall stems cheer a patio area as the sun sets.
