Bloomed for the first time last night in my garden - Ipomoea alba "Native to tropical America. It is a tender perennial vine that can be grown as a warm weather annual. It is noted for its fragrant nocturnal white blooms (moonflowers) and its deep green foliage. Although it will grow to 70’ or more in tropical climates, it typically reaches 10-15’ in a single season as an annual. Milky-juiced, somewhat prickly, twining stems are clad with large, rounded, broad-ovate, deep green leaves (4-8” long) with cordate bases. Fragrant, white flowers (to 6” diameter) bloom at dusk from mid-summer into fall. Flowers unfold in early evening before nightfall from attractive spiraled tubular flower buds. Flowers remain open all night and eventually close before noon the following day. Flowers attract night-flying moths." I took several photos about 9:00PM last night with different lighting to see what it would look like... subdued overhead lighting with camera flash no flash but lit from the side by a flashlight taken 7:30AM this morning under natural light I'm hoping to either overwinter the vine or gather seeds for next year.
