Moonflower

(Ipomoea alba) Moonflower is a tender perennial often grown as an annual outside of its native region. This romantic flower is a night-blooming relative of the morning glory and requires trellising for its large, flower- laden vines. Spectacular blossoms unfurl in the evening, releasing a pleasant, almost lemony fragrance. Direct sow, ¼ inch deep, two weeks after last frost. Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hours before planting. Alternatively, you may start them indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost in 4 inch pots and carefully transplant out after all chance of frost has passed. Ideal germination temperature is 65-75F. Seeds take 7-21days to germinate. Space plants 6-12 inches apart. Grow up a trellis in a sunny location. Moonflower tolerates poor soils, but avoid high levels of nitrogen.
