I love the way these start to open too! Looking as a 🌟 verses a circle, as on the ones I have. I see where one is moon and other is trumpet..lol!😁😊😂😍 The names this goes by is crazy,which I'm sure u know,but they r: #devilstrumpet #jimsonweed #hellsbells #datura #devilseeed #thornapple (I guess from fragrance) What do u think they smell like? Plz..keep me in mind for seeds. I have a few spots I could place this to enjoy it and frag. while sitting outside...I'm just in Love with it...hehe!😍
(Cont) Janelle 😊I just read that the name thorn apple: is derived from Datura (Dhatura,which in Hindu,means thorn apple) The #sphinx and #hawkmoths visit it as well for pollenating. Sorry I'm sure u had read info on it but found it quite amazing with it being similar to the Tropical Morning Glory. These also go by: #locoweed (I'd say due to the hallucinating traits it has) #moonlily #indianapple and #tolguacha I'll stop going on about this beauty 😍 Hope U Have A Good Day!❣
Ok but Let the #tropicalmorningglory or called the #moonflower Mine are blooming and Smell So Good! Soon where each flower bloomed the pods will dry and seeds will form. Last yr with our move I lost all my seeds but 1 and was hoping for more so it could fill this out But,not done growing yet..hehe❣
Yes,it's a annual here but gives great seed pods for making new ones in spring. @janelleabella it's a tropical and night blooming annual. I feel in Love with it 2 yrs ago. My nieghbor had it and was kind enough to share.
Yes I first got one when I bought my house 14 years ago. My uncle that lived in New Mexico said they are weeds there and grow all over. They can get huge! Like a hydrangea. It's a dantura family. It's one of my top favorite flowers I love them. Has some sentimental thoughts also ❤❤ @Acetaker @veepaisal the two are so opposite one a morning flower one a night flower. I also have the moon flower vine I have it with the morning Glory. It's hast blossomed yet...
Do u have your Moonflower vine with morning glories,in the sun? I have mine in where it can get morning sun(about 3hrs) and the rest is filtered and it loves moist free draining soil. I had it in a pot last yr at the apt and it was out growing it...lol!
