A few years ago I read an article about a vine that blooms at night. I think they called it moonvine. I cannot remember the exact name, but it had beautiful white flowers. Do you know what plant this is?

I believe you read about the Moonflower Vine (Ipomea alba), a relative of the morning glory. It blooms with huge white flowers and smells wonderful. The blooms are open from evening to the next morning. It is an annual that is planted every spring and needs warm soil and full sun.
