What is the plant
This South African native is an heirloom plant, botanically called Zaluzianskya capensis. If you already grow a moon garden in your home landscape, this annual phlox is easy to include. If you’re thinking of starting an evening fragrance garden, night blooming phlox can have its own spot or pair it with other fragrant plants. Night phlox bloom in shades of white, purple, and even maroon. Night blooming phlox offers a honey-almond, vanilla fragrance that combines well with the sweet scents of angel’s trumpets, the rich clove smell of dianthus and the perfume-like jasmine scent of four o’clock plants. Plant the evening fragrance garden near an outdoor seating area to take full advantage of the wonderful fragrance emitted from some night blooming plants. If this area is in the shade, grow night blooming phlox in movable containers, so they may receive adequate sunlight during the day. Summer flowers of night phlox plants attract bees, birds, and butterflies, so this is also a good plant to include in a sunny butterfly garden.
