One of Melissa's favorite plants for her patio is Moonflower, which she started from seed.
These vines produce gorgeous, fragrant white flowers which bloom in the early evening hours.
Since they bloom at night, we'll see what happens during the upcoming solar eclipse... It probably won't have too much of an effect but it is something fun to wonder about!
Aaron and I will see you at the Iowa State Fair next week, August 13th when we'll be broadcasting live from the Discovery Garden. We'll answer your gardening questions and talk about some of our favorite plants!
