Hi. This is Yolanda Vanveen, on behalf of Expert Village. In this series, we are talking about moon gardening and now we are going to talk about perennials for your moon garden. So, pretty much any white flower looks gorgeous in your moon garden. It could be a light cream as well, or even a light yellow. There are many, many light perennials that we can choose from. So, when I'm selecting them, I try to find perennials that have nice foliage; even a silver or anything that has veregation (anything that has spotted leaves). When I'm selecting perennials that have flowers on them, I try to select ones that have short, medium and tall so that I have the short ones in the front of the bed and the taller ones in the back of the bed. Although I'm using perennials, I still use some annuals, too. My perennials come back every year, but my annuals die over the winter and I never see them again. They are easy to replace; even my white pansies will keep blooming through the fall. They are an ultimate beautiful addition to my moon garden. Now that we've selected out plants, let's talk about how to take care of our moon garden.
