Moonflowers At Last!


Like the Passionflower, Moonflowers are another first for me. I started the seeds months ago, when I started some Morning Glory seeds.  


The Morning Glories have been blooming like mad for weeks but the Moonflowers, while making nice vines, have been slow to blossom.


I've been keeping an anxious eye on the few buds that have manifested and was finally rewarded with two nice flowers yesterday afternoon.


They have a lovely silken look . . .


And a pleasant fragrance . . .


A most elegant flower -- worth the wait!

I don't know these flowers, so it's been nice to see.

Good looking flowers, and good for the gardener to try something new and have it work out!

Why the name? Blooms at night under a full Moon?
