Moonflowers
We have been asked for Moonflowers by gardeners referring to all three of these varieties. Make sure to choose the one that you remember! All are prized for their preference for opening at dusk and releasing their fragrance only throughout the night. Seeds should be planted in warm conditions.

Common Evening Primrose/Yellow Moonflower
(Oenthera biennis) Beautiful native wildflower that puts on quite a show in mid to late summer evenings. Flowers unfurl in just a few minutes and have a light scent to attract their pollinators - moths - and then close with the morning light.. Used medicinally by Native Americans and early settlers and said to impart strength when used on the skin of those going into battle. 3-5 feet. Most/ full sun. Biennial (and reseeds). 100+ seeds/pack
