Your Garden at Night
Southern Living has a terrific video feature on making the most of your garden by moonlight. Editor Rebecca Reed shares her thoughts and ideas on the best plants and flowers to inspire you to make the most of the your gardens, garden paths and more during the evening hours.
“Think Light Rather Than Bright” as not all colors stand out at night. By moonlight, reds and pinks look grey, and purples and blues just disappear. Be strategic, and keep in mind that plants with variegated foilage, such as variegated hosta, are big standouts by moonlight.
