The Q&A Archives: Moonflower and Angel's Trumpet

Question: Do you have any information on moonflowers/angel trumpet flowers? Do you sell seeds/plants of either?

Answer: There are two distinctly different plants commonly called Moonflower. One is a vine with 6-inch flat morning glory-like flowers that open at night and are richly fragrant. We carry the seed of this moonflower which is Calonyction aculeatum botanically. The other plant called moonflower or, more often, angel's trumpet is a bushy annual with upright flaring trumpets of white flushed with a little lilac on the undersides and buds. Each flower is about 9 inches long and 6 inches wide at the mouth. This interesting beauty is a species of Datura (a poisonous-seeded relative of Jimpson weed). We do not offer this seed and I don't know who does.
