Who knew there were flowers that bloom at night? Not only do moonflowers bloom at night, but they also smell divine! These are the perfect flowers for sitting on your porch at night during the summer.

According to some Pagans, these flowers also are supposed to have medicinal and magical properties. These would be the perfect flowers for a magical-looking garden!

These moonflowers are typically white or very light colors, so you can see them even after the sun goes down.

Moonflowers bloom mid-summer and will last all the way into fall. These flowers will look like white buds, until the sun goes down.

Then, they will open up and bloom into beautiful flowers at night or even on some cloudy days.

If you want a beautiful moon garden, it is best to plant your moonflowers during spring!
