PORTSMOUTH FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY Town Garden Work Summer 2017

2017 Planted Moonflower vine at Public Library

The Moon flower is related to morning glory but is white and blooms at night or depending on darkness -early evening or late AM.  It then droops and will fall off.  It booms every nite.  They are about 5 inches in diameter and can grow to 20 plus feet with propping.  Originally the flower grew in sub-tropical environments and can grow in Florida as a perennial.  In colder climes they are annuals.. They adapted to color white as they attract a certain kind of moth.   They do not need much care.  Very suitable for a white garden and in the south people propagate them next to  front door for interest and later in the season when blooming have a wonderful scent when a person walks thru the door. The plant or seeds can be bought and  grown locally.  - Provided by Jan Gump
