This is my very first Moonflower ever. I didn't know they were so big and pretty. It smells really good, too. I have other buds coming also. I'm going to love it.

I absolutely love moon flowers, just real hard to find seed here so I haven't grown any in quite awhile now. So beautiful! I prefer them over morning glories as I'm more of a night owl than an early bird and get to enjoy the night/evening bloomers better. :D

Been growing them for over 30 yrs. Their scent is awesome. 1 seed pod will yield at least 75 plants.

Jerry you are confusing Ipomoea alba (pictured) with a datura. I. alba pods only produce an average of 4 seeds. They are a type of morning glory.

Bill I love Moonflower vines but get late blooms, around Aug., even when I start them early inside. I have wintered them over under HID lights and they do really well. With a vine that I've wintered over I can get blooms almost as soon as it's back outside in the spring.

Karyn, I'm glad you told me about the wintering over thing. I thought this would never blossom. It is getting nice buds now but the year is almost over. I'll be trying that.

Oh that is so pretty! I love the pink! I've some moonflower seeds, but not the normal moonflower that are like morning glories, so I guess they are these. Someone sent them to me with other seeds and I've no idea what color they are. I guess I'll find out this next season! :)
