MORNING GLORY Moonflower ipomoea noctiflora Annual morning glories are a nostalgic symbol of the cottage gardens. This variety 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 discs that emit the scent of cloves from their large blooms. Type: Annual Light: sun Soil: good garden Spacing: 15 cm Height: 300cm vine Season: summer to frost Propagation: Soak seed or 24 hours. Direct seed after all danger of frost 2 cm deep. Cover seed. (preferred method) OR Start indoors 4 weeks before last frost. Germinate @ 21C. Set out after all frost danger and ground is warm. SEED COUNT: Approx. 20 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.
