  1. Question

    Amber Vanlanen

    Can these be grown inside? Zone 4, many of the flowers I like are not cold hardy. Just wondering if these moon flowers can thrive inside

      Hello Amber,
      Fine to grow as a summer annual in the garden or potted plant in the greenhouse, sunroom, maybe even a sunny windowsill. They like to get big before they flower, though, so it might be oversize for indoor culture.

    This is one of a few plants I ordered. Each one was very carefully packaged, so well that it took me a minute to figure out the system. Do not let shipping deter you, this shop places a great deal of effort into ensuring that plants arrive healthy no matter how far they travel. They provide instructions and a catalog. I will definitely order again. They answered all questions with patience and helpful information even before an order was placed both by phone and online. The reviews on the other plants purchased will be the same because this is true for every single one.

      Hi! I was wondering – how do you get these to perennialize? Is it just a matter of luck? (In Zone 5b-6a)

      Hello Lyla,
      Thanks for getting in touch. There are things you can do to get these to perennialize, and I note that you are in a colder zone than the usual recommendation (although you can readily grow this as an annual and it is effective that way and our plants are outstanding this year). Choose a sunny site that is extremely well-drained and in the autumn after the plant freezes back mulch heavily. Richo
