Fun Fact Friday, Wk 11

Howdy All

Yep its Friday again !! Hope you’ve all had great weeks ?

Here’s your Friday fun fact for this week :

Moon flowers bloom only at night, closing during the day. They have large 4 to 6 inch fragrant, white or pink trumpet shaped flowers on twining vines. The Moon flower opens in the evening and lasts through the night, remaining open until it comes into contact with the morning Sun.

This interesting flower is native to American Tropics and related to the Morning Glory. In the hot weather they grow extremely fast. They are known for their heavenly fragrance which can permeate the whole area they are planted in which lasts until the morning sun appears.  

Enjoy your weekend
