|MORNING GLORY - Moonflower
Ipomoea noctiflora - Another twiner, this variety of morning glory, introduced in the late 1800’s begins to flourish just before dusk, when the other varieties have begun to nod for the evening. Moonflowers present large, silky-white platters that emit the scent of cloves from the six-inch across blooms SEED COUNT: 25 plus
Not to be confused with their pesky cousin, bindweed, these annual morning glories are a nostalgic symbol of the cottage gardens of the “new world”. For twining up a porch, mailbox, fence, etc. these heat-loving beauties are indispensable. The bloom time of morning glories depends on temperature. Blooms will unfurl as the temperature climbs and then close up if the sun gets too hot. Notice how morning glories cheerfully stay open for prolonged periods on a cloudy day. Soak seeds 24 hours and D.S. in a hot spot or Germ. 65o-70o and Tr. Use individual pots. 10 cm.
