Looking for a totally unique gardening trend? Try dedicating a space in your garden to white followers for a beautiful touch. Not only do the white flowers themselves look stunning, but they can literally reflect the moonlight for a cool outdoor effect in your own backyard. Try this unique moonlight gardening trend today by planting a few of the flowers below:
White Gardens: Moonlight Reflection
When planting these beautiful flowers in your garden, the only things really important to consider are the location of the flower and the quality of the soil. Calla Lillies like loose, well-draining soil in an area of full sun. Plant them in the Spring for beautiful flowers through the entirety of the Summer. And of course, make sure you are enjoying these flowers in the moonlight.
Double White Begonia
If you’re looking to attract hummingbirds to your garden, double white begonias are the perfect flower! However, these flowers are only hardy in zones higher than 8 (though they can be grown in zones as low as 2), and they love areas of partial sun and even full shade. What’s better is that these beauties are deer resistant, so you can reflect the moonlight in your garden easily.
Shirley Temple Peony
I’m a sucker for just about any kind of peony, but there’s something about these Shirley Temple Peonies that are especially gorgeous. The big, white flowers truly reflect the moonlight so easily! Make sure you deadhead your peonies in late Spring so they continue producing big beautiful flowers for the remainder of the growing season.
White Swirl Siberian Iris
This plant will reflect the moonlight beautifully in your own garden! This late-spring blooming perennial makes a statement in early June, and will throughout July if you live in an area cool enough. The Siberian iris loves moist soil and areas of full sun.
White Barlow Columbine
When creating your own moonlight reflection gardens, you have to add a White Barlow Columbine flower into the mix somewhere! These pretty little flowers feature double blooms, which will give you plenty to look at when strolling through your garden under the moonlight. Make sure that these beauties are planted in well-draining soil and are planted at least 12-18 inches apart. Plant these bulbs in late Fall for blooms come Spring.
