Ipomoea alba

Ipomoea alba Moonflower Ipomoea alba Moonflower

Fragrant, and enormous white blooms (6” long and wide) open in the evening and close before mid-day. A wonderful vine to plant near an outdoor patio or near one’s bedroom window. Numerous flowers are produced on vigorous stems, grows 10-15’ tall. Blooms late Spring-Fall. Luxurious leaves, 3-8” long and heart-shaped, are closely spaced. Provide something for it to clamber up like a trellis. Ordinary soil is fine. No need to fertilize, but I’m sure it would love a bit of compost. Excellent for an evening rendezvous!
