Moonflowers

Ipomoea alba. This Morning Glory sibling is a prized, night-blooming heirloom that will scramble up supportive structures for a most addictive, jasmine-scented evening curtain. A continuous performer from early summer through the first fall frost, this spectacular climbing annual begins its show each evening about dusk with profuse, trumpet-shaped flowers amongst lush, heart shaped, light-green foliage. It may be direct-sown after last spring frost date or started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before planting outside. They prefer full sun, well-draining soil, dry conditions and soil that is not too rich in order to maximize their flower production. Readily twining Moonflowers will need the support of a trellis, fence, lamppost, mailbox post or secure garden twine. Summer blooming. Height: 8' to 10'.

Average seed life: 2 years.

Ipomoea alba. A spectacular climbing annual, this old-fashioned favorite will scramble up supportive structures for beautiful nighttime floral displays until the first fall frost. Prior to planting, carefully nick the hard seed coat and/or soak the seeds overnight. Then, direct-sow them where they are to grow after all danger of frost is past. Or start the seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before planting outside. Carefully thin or transplant Moonflowers to a spacing of 6" to 8" apart without disturbing their roots, and plant in full sun and well-draining soil. Water moderately, as Moonflowers prefer dry conditions. Only fertilize lightly, as soil that is too rich will discourage flower production. Moonflowers require a trellis, fence, string, lamppost or mailbox post to support their long, climbing vines and profuse flowers. Summer flowering. Height: 10' to 12'.
