This is my first year gardening with moon flowers, well honestly it's my first year gardening in general. :P I have one angel trumpet plant and 3 moon flower vines - 2 from sprouts and one from seeds.
As a newbee to the garden, you bet I'm gonna have questions in this post! :D
The angel trumpet is one of the most beautiful blooms I have ever seen in my life and the flowers are pretty big in size . It has been growing pretty sucessfully and pretty quickley. The only thing that is driving me NUTS is that it blooms when night falls and then the next day it just hangs till it eventually falls off and dies that day. I've been looking at a lot of photos of mature bushes and all the flowers seem to hang also. I'm thinking that the only reason mine fall so quick is because it is so young and there is not much for it to lean up on. But I'm not to sure. Maybe the blooms are just very short lived? In anycase, whatever the reason is, I ASSURE you that every trumpet's first bloom is very magnificant and I am happy to have it. It's a perennials so I'm very excited to see where the years take it.
AS FOR THE MOON FLOWER VINES ....... G R R R R R ! !
My moon flower vines are growning like CRAZY. I can hardly keep up with them. Now, I wouldn't mind the constant need to help them expand if they would produce flowers but I have not seen one single bloom! Any advice??? I'm growing a bit impatient. They are annuals so I'm hoping to get atleast one little bitsy flower out of it to satisfy the work before fall.
Well any advice would be much appreciated.
I don't have any off hand, but I'll for sure add some pictures soon of the Trumpet blooms.
