Product Description

Ipomoea alba

 

  | 50 Seeds|

Moonflower (Ipomea) is a fragrant standard found on many fences or trellis. The moon flower is vigorous and easy to grow flower that grows up a 15 foot vine once given support. Its large 5-6" pure white blooms open at night to release its aromatic perfume. If you grow this Moonflower near your porch you can sit out at night and enjoy the evening breeze, and you will surely smell this wonderful aroma.  Frequently visited by night pollinators.  Nothing more spectacular than the sight of these under a full moon trellised along a fence or wall.  Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Sorry, We cannot ship any Morning Glories to AZ, MI, or PR.

50 Seeds per Package.

How to Grow from the Ipomea Family - Morning Glory Seeds - Moonflower Seeds

  • The seed coat is very thick. Nick Morning Glory seeds, or soak it in warm water overnight to soften it ,and this will increase germination rates.

  • Sow Morning Glory seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/4" of soil. Water thoroughly once. Thin or space plants to a final distance of 6" apart. They will tolerate a little crowding if there is ample supports for their vines to spread up and out. Keep soil at 70° F-germination is in 7-21 days. Could be sown direct after all danger of frost. Plant 6-8 seeds per foot, then thin to 12 inches apart.

  • Morning Glory plants like full sun. Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that. Make sure your start early with training your plant to climb the trellis or fence.

  • Once your Morning Glories are established, they should grow well, even if left unattended. Soil should be moist, but not wet. Water them during dry periods, once or twice per week.

  • Morning Glory are half hardy annuals. They will often survive the first frost, especially if grown along the house or other buildings. Morning glories have very few problems with insects and disease. If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide. They will not survive a hard frost or freeze.

  • Morning Glory plants like full sun. They will grow in average to poor soils. Add compost prior to planting, if your soil is poor.
