This is the first year I have had a moonflower vine, and let me tell you it will not be the last! Love, love, love this flowering vine.

The moonflower has a thick, heady scent. Boy is it strong!

This one is planted in a pot along my back porch. The flowers are just beautiful against the dark night sky.

The flower is over 6 inches wide!

This was my first year with moonflower also, but mine grabbed on to the neighbors tree and climbed higher than my two story house so I didn't get to enjoy the scents of the blooms opening that high up.

I love moonflower too! Never got around to planting it this year, but I'm making a note for next summer right now.

I've grown Moonflower vine for years, Sun is Killing Me, and am not tired of it yet - also can't stop taking photos of the gleaming white discs ;-]

They evidently hate me. I've never been able to keep one alive despite awesome records with every other ipomoea. Datura booms for me, too.
