(Ipomoea alba)
No romantic evening garden would be complete without the luminous, iridescent huge trumpets of white Moonflower, the fragrant Southern belle of climbing vines. These vigorous vines with their large, bright green heart shaped leaves make a dense canopy that will cloak a fence or sturdy trellis. At dusk, the opalescent buds unfurl in slow motion while you watch, releasing their haunting perfume as they swirl and flare wide open to show delicate throats creased with a creamy star. Approx. 23 seeds/pack. Mature height 10-12
feet.               
ANNUAL VINE: Summer/fall bloom, Frost tender.

TO START OUTDOORS: In late spring once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°F (10°C), sow in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 6 inches apart and 1 inch deep. Firm soil over seeds.

TO START EARLY INDOORS: Sow indoors 2 to 3 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1 inch deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready for outdoor planting. Transplant very carefully once nights stay above 50°F (10°C) and before seedlings get too crowded. Thin or transplant seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart. Be careful not to disturb roots.

GROWING NOTES: To speed germination, nick the edge of each seed with a nail clipper, or soak for no longer than 8 hours in tepid water. Plant immediately after soaking. Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall at planting time; strong netting, a wood or wire fence or a sturdy trellis serve well to hold these vigorous climbers. Moonflowers need a long warm growing season. Combine with dawn blooming morning glories for a spectacular late summer display both night and day.
