- Night blooming flowers generally attract pollinating insects by scent. They usually are the ones that are very fragrant. There are plenty of night bloomers that aren't white, but are usually more muted in color than day bloomers that attract insects using visual cues like color, shape and even patches of UV reflectors that we can't see. They tend to be pale or white because bright colors aren't needed, the plant puts energy into making those heavy aromas and, usually, a nectar reward.
A good example are a genus or orchids call the Angraecums. They are usually white or pale pink or green and are pollinated by night flying moths. They are very highly scented and are unusual among orchids in that they provide a nectar reward. Very few orchids produce nectar. They have even evolved a special receptacle for it, a "spur" or nectiary often of a certain shape or length to ensure that only certain species are able to feed from it and act as pollinators.10
