Summer nights are perfect for relaxing outdoors, and night-scented plants can make your outdoor space even more enjoyable. These plants release their sweet fragrances as dusk falls, filling the air with a delightful perfume.

Why Plant Night-Scented Plants?

Night-scented plants have evolved to attract nocturnal pollinators, such as moths. They are often pale in color, making them more visible in moonlight. Planting night-scented plants around a terrace or patio, near an open window, or next to a well-worn path will allow you to enjoy their fragrance more easily.
