Seeds for Planting a Moon Garden

Anyone who has the chance to view their flower garden at night should consider planting a small "Moon Garden" patch that can be enjoyed during the late evening and early night hours. Some flowers only flower at late evening and night and others, particularly several white varieties seem to actually glow under a moonlight. We recommend the following:
TPF010 Bishop's Flower ( Ammi majus )
An erect annual, growing to 3 ft. tall with an abundance of large, 5-6 inch round flower heads made up of small snow white florets. Very similar to Queen Ann's Lace. Wonderful cutflower.
  350mg pack ( over 200 seeeds ) $2.00
FL050 Pure White Spider Plant ( Cleome )
A delightful spider plant that grows about 3 ft. tall. Very different, as it has pure white glistening flowers. Pre-chill seeds for about a week before sowing, should germinate in about 2-3 weeks.

D9804 Giant Moonflower( Ipomea alba var )
The moonflower is a vigorous twining vine that is very fast growing in really hot weather. It is a tender tropical perennial but is now seeing popular use as an annual vine in colder areas.
This close relative of the morning glory has similar heart shaped leaves that are a rich green and 4-8 inches long. They provide a beautiful backdrop for the spectacular moonflowers.
This vine also known as the evening glory as its buds open in late afternoon and last only until morning's light transforms them into a limp shriveled mass.
Moonflower makes up for the brief lifespans of individual flowers by producing quantities of the big blossoms throughout the summer. These are held on a stem that bears several buds simultaneously, not all of which bloom the same night. The long 4 inch buds are also very attractive especially in the hours just before the flower opens.
And what a fabulous flower the moon vine produces! They are fluted funnels sculpted in purest alabaster white. About the diameter of a saucer measuring 5-6 inches across.
As if the moonflower was not already enchanting enough, it also has a delightful fragrance to complement its beauty and perfume warm summer nights.
