ROMANTIC NIGHT GARDEN!
Rare Lavender Moonvine
10 SEEDS!! (that's .45 cents a vine!)
Ahhhh....as the warm day's sun begins to set and the cool breeze of the evening blows through the garden...keep a watch towards your Moonvines ~ this is their hour of glory!
Don't blink or you'll miss the magical moment when the large buds 'unfurl' into wondrous plate-sized Beauty Of The Night, right before your eyes!
If I were to pick my favorite vine...the Ipomoea's top my list. It's the first seed I plant in the Spring, and the last bloom to give up in the fall. These magnificent Queen's of the Night appear to signal your Night Garden to come alive each evening! When planted together, different varieties of Moonvines create a dynamic showing under the stars!
Unlike her sister the SCENTED "WHITE MOONVINE" the Rare Lavender Moonvine does not have a fragrance, but then, when you look this good, you really don't need a second job! Besides, when compared to other Ipomoea's, what she lacks in scent, the Lavender Moonvine makes up in tenacious bloom production.
ZONE: Reseeding annual in all Zones.
SOW: You can direct sow when ground is warm. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. And, this vine does wonderful in staked pots. Lavender Moonvine need a trellis or support to climb.
