Dear Friends,

My love of magickal gardening reached new heights when I made a special Moon garden of flowers that bloom under the radiant Lady’s heavenly glow. There is nothing more breathtaking than looking up at the Moon and looking down at the flora honoring her in her glory. A symphony of beautiful blooms stands at her attention. Magickal gardens, including Moon Gardens, bring Mother Earth alive. A Moon Garden consists of flowers that bloom at night. They are mostly white, but can come in other pale shades. To start a Moon Garden, check with a gardening book about the hardiness zone you live in. Some of the following plants may not work in your area, but there are plenty that will.

Following is a list of my favorite Moon Garden residents. Some do not bloom at night, but add wonderful elements to the garden nonetheless. Giant Moonflower- a fast growing vine related to the morning glory, this annual may climb to 10 feet. Tightly closed by day, its white flowers open at dusk to release a sweet fragrance. Flowers can be seen very clearly in moonlight.

Pink Evening Primrose- a lovely border plant growing to 12″ with silky, rose colored blooms that deepen to a butter-yellow center. Opens in late evening to release soft fragrance.

Jasmine Tobacco- a very sweet scented flowering tobacco with pure white trumpet shaped flowers 3-4″ long and 1-1/2″ wide that open in evening. Very free flowering. Fall sown seedlings make great pot plants for growing during the winter. A good Moon Garden subject as its flowers open at night and show up well in moonlight.

White Angel’s Trumpet-Excellent Moon Garden plant with large showy pure white trumpet shaped flowers up to 8″ long that open at night. Sometimes fragrant. Large spiny seedpods. One of the largest Angel’s Trumpet available.

South African Dimorphotheca- This is the famous flower from the flora of the South African countryside. Grows only 12″ tall with milky white blossoms so pure they appear to be luminous. Shows up very well at night under moonlight.

Pure White Spider Plant-A delightful spider plant that grows about 3 ft. tall. Very different, as it has pure white glistening flowers. Pre-chill seeds for about a week before sowing and they should germinate in about 2-3 weeks.

Pure White African Daisy- A fast growing African daisy growing to 10 inches with large, pure white flowers with black eyes. A slightly spreading plant.

White Dill- a beautiful plant growing to about 36 in. tall with clouds of white flowers often in clusters 6 in. or more across. Seeds need light to germinate. Seedlings will appear in about two weeks.

White Leafed Dusty Miller-
The foliage of this plant is very white and fine leafed. Good compact growth.
A different looking dusty miller that will stand out in your garden. Sow seeds on surface, germinates in about 2 weeks.

Pure White Salvia- Grows 10-12 inches with dark green foliage and pure white flowers. Very unusual and very early flowering.

Pure White Coneflower-A lovely pure white version of Echinacea purpurea that bears fragrant white coneflowers. Very nice cutflowers that show up well in the moonlight.

Snow White Carnation-Probably the whitest carnations you will ever see. An excellent cutflower, they also make wonderful bedding and border plants. Have spicy-sweet fragrance.

Feverfew-A Native American herb with sprays of 1″ single white daisy-like flowers. Yellow centers are flat. The flowers are said to repel bees and a tea made from the plant is said to relieve headaches.

Mayweed-A gorgeous plant with fern-like foliage and white daisy-like flowers.
The leaves make a relaxing bedtime tea.

Four O’Clocks-These are fragrant flowers that come in several colors. Their trumpet shape blooms open in the evening around four p.m. and close in the daylight.
Happy Planting!

Love And Light,

    I will be honest I’m a Christian doing a favor for a friend. Her ex-husband recently died and she put white and red carnations on his grave site. His wife pulled all the flowers off the arrangement. She now takes only the red carnations and pulls them off the stems whenever my friend or her children (his children too) put the flowers on the grave. I was wondering if there was something religious as she is a wiccan that prompts her to do this? My friend was still very close to her ex-husband and this whole affair has greatly hurt her and the children. Feel free to email the answer if thats easier for me. Thanks.
