Moon Flower

My husband told me he had seen a large white flower on Saturday. But could not find it. He kept saying he thought he'd seen it on the fence. I told him there was a moon flower out there but it only blooms at night and I hadn't even seen it bloom.

Late this afternoon, on my way to the mailbox, I saw it. And it wasn't even dark. Isn't it pretty?

It is lovely. Is it a type of convolvulous? Looks like our purple ones, but they flower during the day.

Wouldn't it be cool to plant Morning Glories and Moon Flowers together. The glories would be gone by supper.. just as the Moonies come out....
Beautiful!
