Moonflower, Giant White

Short Description

HEIRLOOM. Fragrant 6" flowers open in the evening.

Full Description

These old fashioned flowers, as the name implies, open in the evening. As evening falls, you can actually watch them open. For added interest, mix them with morning bloomers such as morning glories. Grown as an annual but perennial in mild areas, they're easy to grow and grow best in full sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moon Flowers prolific season I bought several packs of Moon Flower seeds and started my four plants from seed inside. At the appropriate time, I planted the plants outside. I watched the vines grow for a couple months and then waited patiently for the pods holding the buds to appear. Since they have bloomed, there have been nights with up to 34 blooms among the four plants. It has been a wonderful addition to my patio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The smell of these are amazing on summer nights! I've bought burpee moonflower seeds for years. I always soak for 24 hrs before planting. I have found that if you want the best results to plant these in a large pot ( large root system ) with good fertile soil. or just good soil, and mulch. A good bloom boosting liquid fertilizer helps as well. These open in what seems like the blink of an eye and then you have these incredibly large, velvety soft flowers that have such an incredible fragrance to them.. Defiantly plant close to a patio or door so you can watch and smell these when they bloom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely as always Every year my moonflowers are among my favorites - appearing in the evening, and late in the season, they are something very special in my gardening year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright I've planted moonflowers before but these didn't all grow. Not sure if all the hot weather was just too much but not all the seeds really grew. The 2 that actually grew didn't get as big as I'm use to but the flowers were absolutely beautiful. I probably won't buy them again unless the price is low.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The scent is worth it Good germination. I transplanted 12 plants to my garden area, got 2 flowers that smelled wonderfully, then nothing else happened. It's been about 6 weeks since I had the flowers, but the plants are still alive. We'll see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful moonflowers They take their time but are absolutely worth the wait and they can take the heat. Start inside as early as possible to give them the head start that they need. Once they start blooming they will be an attention getter. They open at night and are beautifully fragrant and they glow in the dark almost. Close about mid morning till the next night and are impressive in size and vine coverage. I planted one on each side of my trellis and it was magnificent. Make sure you soak them over night and water them well and plant in full sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Moonflowers My tried and true way to grow these is to soak the seeds overnight in a mason jar. Then I add a seed sprouting lid (like the kind you sprout alfalfa seeds for salads and sandwiches). Keep them warm for a few days and rinse them daily and you will see a high germination rate....almost 100%. I then plant them root down in my prepared bed cover with a little soil and snug them in and keep them watered well. I diligently train the vines to a trellis again a barn wall. I plant about 10 packages every year with breathtaking results. Hummingbird moths love them and give me an evening show after the blooms start. It is so worth the extra effort to start early but wait until the ground is warm to plant the seeds. It's all about timing. Can't go without Moonflowers. Burpee's seeds are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moonflower - easy to start from seed This is the 3rd year I've purchased Burpee moonflower seeds, each year 90% of the seeds planted germinated. I start them indoors in peat pots using a seed starting soil mix purchased at a local garden center then plant them in the ground outside about 2 weeks after they germinate, weather permitting. The vine is fast growing and the blooms do not disappoint, large and fragrant.
