Fragrant white blooms are best enjoyed at dusk.
Gardening is not a just a daylight activity, and your garden does not go to sleep when you do. Nighttime is when many growers—and garden visitors of all species—get to enjoy the fruits of horticultural labors. Midnight pollinators flock to this evening glory, which blooms in time for your return home from work, sends out its scent for a summer dinner al fresco, and glows in the moonlight to romance all nocturnal creatures—including night owls. Grow with morning glories for blooms night and day.
