Moon Flower (Vine)
What is this spectacular flower with beautiful dark green heart shaped leaves, that only comes out at night? Moon flower vine, yes I know some people further south than Missouri or at least where it doesn't freeze may call it a noxious weed. I love white and this is a spectacular huge blossom! It loves the heat and doesn't bloom until August here in Missouri.
We start the vine from seeds. My very handy husband (thank goodness he is a yard person) built a trellis that is 12 foot high and we painted it the color of the siding, so when this beautiful vine isn't growing, the trellis blends in with the house. We have planted it in this same spot now for several years. You can see the eve of the house and it actually grows above the trellis. We do have to keep the vine from overtaking the bushes and flowers in front of it though. Once it freezes, this vine is a goner.
This little guy was on the trellis earlier in the summer, before the vine started really getting big, otherwise we would not have been able to see him. I love frogs.
