20+ Moonflower Ipomoea Alba Seeds-B153


Moonflower is a plant in the Ipomoea genus, which includes over 500 species. The plant is an annual in much of North America but it is easy to start from seed and has a very rapid growth rate. Moonflower seed pods contain several chambers and numerous flat black seeds. Annual, Perennial, Ipomea Moonflowers are nocturnal bloomers, perfect for night owls and late night strollers. After sunset, these huge white flowers bloom and glow all night in the moonlight. Then, as the sun rises, they close their fragrant blooms.

Moonflowers are a vining plant, and can grow as much as 12-18 feet in a single year. They are perennial in their native tropical homes, and used as annuals in more northerly areas. Moonflower plants are prolific climbers with attractive leaves. When growing moonflowers, make sure to plant them where they can climb quickly towards the moon.

Plant them along patios and sidewalks, where people are likely to be in early evening
