Moon Vine, Ipomomea alba

$10.00

6″ pot

Moonflower is a tender perennial vine that can add incredible beauty and powerful fragrance to a night garden. Often grown as an annual outside of its tropical and subtropical growing zones, this vine features large, heart-shaped, dark green leaves on robust, slightly prickly stems. Its trumpet-shaped flowers begin blooming in mid-summer and last until fall. They are typically an iridescent white and grow around 6 inches long and 3 to 6 inches wide.1 The blooms unfurl from cone-shaped buds as the sun goes down, as well as on cloudy days. They stay open all night, exuding their sweet fragrance into the air, before closing up again the next morning. Moonflower is best planted in the spring after the danger of frost has passed. It is a fast-growing vine and can reach around 10 feet long in just one season under optimal conditions.  Treat as an annual
