Ipomoea muricata (Lavender Moonvine) [8 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I highly recommend nicking the seeds and soaking them overnight before sowing. Start the seeds indoors (1/4 to 1/2″ deep) in warm, bright conditions in mid-spring, or sow directly where you want them to grow after your last frost date.

An interesting side note: When I harvested the very first ripe seeds in 2020, in the third week of July, I stuck two of them into the growing medium at the base of my vine (growing in a container), and they emerged in just 2 days with no special treatment. (Nicking the seed coat and/or soaking before planting does seem to be very important for seeds that have been dried for storage, though.)

Description

Lavender moonvine (Ipomoea muricata), also known as clove bean, is a twining vine with lavender-purple to pinkish lavender, single flowers that open in the evening and close the next day. It is not fragrant, as white moonflower (Ipomoea alba) is, and the flowers aren’t as large, but the two species look great growing together in an evening garden or moon garden. Or, you might pair lavender moonvine with a day-flowering morning glory to have round-the-clock bloom. Figure it will grow 8 to 12 feet tall, or possibly even larger, if it’s in good growing conditions in the ground and the support is that big. Best in full sun. Annual. Be aware that this species can self-sow freely, to the point of being considered invasive in some warm-climate areas.

Harvested in 2020. At least 8 seeds.
