Amazing Moon Flower
My first Moon Flower plant was given to me by a friend in Alabama. We had so much fun watching that plant bloom that I have carried one with me every time I have moved. I will have seeds to sell from this one in early fall – in time to plant for next years crop. I’ll post them on my side bar when they are ready. The Moon Flower is a member of the Evening Primrose family. It is not invasive but does reseed. The one in the video I planted this year, a mature plant can reach 5 feet tall, 4 feet across and can have over 100 blooms each night. They bloom for several weeks in June and July and as you can see from the video, it is quite a show. We used to drag our lawn chairs around the Moon Flower and bet on which bud would open next. I know - we need to get a life!
