Petunias may seem be a strange choice for a night garden, but they have a secret. Petunias are night scented. Some smell during the day, but not to the same intensity of the night scent. Plant them in window boxes or hanging baskets to gain the full benefit of the evening scent.
Petunia 'Tumbelina' are among the most highly scented, producing wafts of vanilla fragrance that are strongest in the dead of night.
