Twin­kle, Twin­kle, Gar­den Stars

These third-shift flow­ers shine when dark­ness falls, bright­en­ing your yard into the wee hours.

Moon­flower

This fra­grant night bloomer is a moth mag­net. On nights when the moon is full, the lu­mi­nous glow of the white flow­ers is ab­so­lutely cap­ti­vat­ing.

Evening Prim­rose

A fa­vorite of hum­ming­bird moths, this large le­mon-scented flower opens at dusk and closes back up in the morn­ing.

Devil’s Trum­pet & An­gel’s Trum­pet

Both flow­ers open in the evening, and with their pow­er­ful fra­grance, they at­tract large hawk moths. Devil’s trum­pets (right) open up­ward, while an­gel’s trum­pets hang down­ward. A word of cau­tion: Like moon­flow­ers, they are toxic if in­gested.
