About this title

Synopsis:

In The Moonlit Garden, Scott Ogden introduces readers to the wonder of the evening garden. Written with charm and elegance, this book will appeal to those whose gardens are a source of intellectual stimulation as well as physical beauty and repose.

Review:

Plantsman and naturalist Scott Ogden writes in loving depth about Southern gardens, including the flora (and sometimes fauna) that inhabits the hills of central Texas where he makes his home. In The Moonlit Garden, Ogden focuses on the flowers of the night, their presence, their perfumes, and their pollinators. He invites us into the night garden, where luminous flowers gleam by star or moonlight. An early section introduces the underlying concepts that affect garden design--particularly the placement of paths, seats, and architectural structures--when our object is nocturnal enjoyment. Ogden begins in the garden, but soon branches out into a range of settings: desert and prairie, tropical and temperate forests, mountain meadow, pond and riverside. He introduces a host of night-blooming plants from each habitat, emphasizing those suitable for garden placement. Though his garden is in USDA zone 8, many of his selections travel well, and could be grown almost anywhere. A final section discusses garden illumination; not surprisingly, Ogden favors the eerie glow of the limestone tai-hu rocks beloved of Chinese gardeners. He warns that excess light--artificial or created by lanterns--can spoil the magic of the garden in the dark. --Ann Lovejoy
