Zaluzianskya capensis is an annual herbaceous plant native to
South Africa beonging to the Figwort family, Scrophulariaceae.
These heady scented night blooming plants grow 6-12 inches tall and
have linear or spoon shaped leaves and large maroon buds which open to
five lobed white blooms. Also known as Night Balsam, Star Balsam,
Night Candy, Night Phlox or Midnight Candy.
Plants are grown primarily from seed, which is sown in flats or
pots. Keep moist a 50-55F. Seedlings should be transplanted
when they reach 2 inches in height, and kept shaded from direct
sunlight until well established, then exposed to full sunlight.

has warmed to 50F.
Make certain to plant them near doorways or patios or in
window boxes where their intense evening scent (sweet and reminiscent
of cake or cookies) can be enjoyed.
