    Has anyone else ever seen or heard of one of these? My mom gave me my first one, and I planted it last year. It really took off this year; has some beautiful white trumpet-shaped blossoms that only open after sunset and close early in the morning. On a cloudy day, they will stay open a little longer. Enjoy the pics.

    Had some seeds given to me a few years back and have kept them going. If you have enough of them they will perfume your yard every evening and draw those great big moths. Pretty neat to see in the moonlight!
