My Moonflower seeds grew well and produced a few flowers.

Owner Response: Hi Bonnie, Thanks for sharing your experience. Moonflowers, like morning glories, do best in poorer soils and are sensitive to nitrogen, producing green growth over flowers when soil is rich with nitrogen. I am letting you know in case it helps get even more blooms in the future.

Beautiful Blooms

These are very beautiful and vigorous vines that produce huge night blooming flowers. I have learned a few tricks over the few years of growing them, which I thought I'd pass along. Being in Maine, summers can be cool, so I grow mine in containers in full sun. For some reason they seem to always do better than others planted in the ground. I also feed mine biweekly with a bloom boosting fertilizer 10-30-10. I find this makes a huge difference and I get many more flowers and they bloom earlier! Last year I had as many as 40 huge blooms in one night, they smelled amazing! Definitely give this plant a try, its really fun to grow.

I usually don't write reviews but this plant is just so special I have to share the word. It is SO easy to grow, and the flowers are as big as my hands! They smell like nothing I've ever experienced before.
