Moonflower: a must have exotic
Moonflower (Ipomoea alba) is a gorgeous member of the morning glory family. This vine with its large heart shaped leaves grows rapidly in sunny areas where moisture isn’t limiting. A great plant for providing living screens. It is the flowers that set this plant apart from the other vines – spectacularly huge 15cm (6″) wide, pure white fragrant flowers open at dusk and close by mid-morning of the next day. To get a jump on the season, start your seed indoors using a soil-less mix and Jiffy pots in late-April. Direct seeding in late May and early June is possible in warm summer climates.
