Perelandra Moonflower Blooming

Moonflower/moonvine has been included in the Perelandra garden for many years. By September it overflows from more than one of our 6 foot trellises. And when it blooms, its unique and beautiful scent wafts across the garden on breezes. The flowers are as big as an open hand and they bloom in the evening, then wind to a close in the morning. It's one of the plants that we really enjoy this time of year and we wanted to share it with you. We just wish we could share with you how wonderful it smells, too!

What usually takes about an hour, we've condensed to just 2-and-a-half minutes. Enjoy some quiet time by our moonflower.
