Moonflowers (Ipomoea alba) should do very well in your
area. Soak the seed from 12 to 24 hours before planting. You will need a fence or strong trellis for them to run on. They tend to grow vigorously.

I have a neighbor that has them growingon a fence here in Jacksonville. They are covered with bloom.

Moonflowers grow wild on many sand dunes in Florida,
and are very easy to grow.
