Ipomoea alba, called the moonflower, morning glory, is a species of night-morning glory, native to tropical and subtropical regions of North and South America, from Argentina to North Mexico. A fascinating and sweetly-scented Ipomoea alba (Moonflower) earns its name from its pure white flowers which open in the evening and close when touched by the morning sun. Moonflowers produce new flowers daily.
