My mom used have a plant in the front yard that we called "moonflowers" because it bloomed at night when the moon came out, big horn-shaped flowers. It croaked several years ago but i had found some old seed pods a couple years ago and tried to get the seeds to germanate but they were just too old and no good. I've searched and found morning glories which are smiliar but they are the vine version of my moms plant. I'm planting flowers out front along the sidewalks and renewed my search for my moon flowers and found them!! they are called Datura xxxx(something, the latin name starts with Datura) and are the bush version of the plant like my mom had and i found a listing for the seeds on ebay from a lady in KS so i'm ordering some tomorrow. Hopefully I can get them in and growing and they'll be blooming in August like they always did for my mom. They smell sooo awesome! I can't wait! I had to share
