Drab, nocturnal, a little stout, and quite a bit fuzzy, moths are often overlooked by gardeners. But, while you and the butterflies are cozied up for the night, the moths are winging in the moonlight, and performing some very important pollination services.

Because colors and shapes are not as prominent at night, moths aren’t drawn to the same flowers that their diurnal counterparts, the butterflies, are. Instead, moth-pollinated flowers tend to be glowing white, and highly fragrant.
