Mountain Rose Herbs. A herbs, health and harmony c
 

Gardens are indeed a thing of delight.  It calms, soothes and gladdens me to see healthy flowers with their faces turned toward the sun.  There is also much enjoyment to be found in the enchanting moonlight garden!  Simply put, a moonlight garden is one that is planted with herbs sporting blooms and foliage which respond particularly well to the light of the moon.  They generally have bright white or yellow flowers and light gray or silvery foliage.  What could be more magical than to stroll through a moon lit garden ripe with fragrant herbs on a warm, still evening?  A moonlight herb garden may be enjoyed by moonlight, daylight or by artificial illumination.

Consider your area and whether your moon garden will suffer from too much "arificial light pollution" from nearby buildings or street lamps.  Consideration must also be given to local weather, temperature and hardiness zones.  Learn about the herbs you want to grow and choose, prepare, and plant accordingly.  Below are suggestions for herbs commonly utilized in the moon garden for their flowers and/or foliage.
