Moonflowers grow wild throughout the state of North Carolina, as well as being grown as a cultivated plant in our state's local gardens. They are similar to Morning Glories, but grace us with their beauty in the evening rather than in the morning. They are fragrant, and attract night moths by which they are pollinated. The flowers bloom only once at dusk and then the petals die in the morning.
