And again, what is this plant?

Post  chocolatepop on 5/28/2010, 1:54 pm

I started this seed, I have it written down as butterflyweed, but it looks NOTHING like what the other package of seeds ended up:


It almost seems vine like with these two HUGE seedling leaves then that spade like flower is the new "adult" one.

Help!...again...

Does the seed itself have any distinctive shape / size / markings?

I think maybe a moon flower.


or Morning Glory (that's less likely). I would suggest prepare a trellis arrangement for it. Shocked

moon flower it is then!!

I must have messed up my planting schematic, but I did plant moon flower, also in this seeding pack I have the following seedlings :sunflower (two kinds), butterfly weed (two kinds), zinnia, and 4 o'clocks.

SO... I wonder is what I think are sunflower seedlings are actually the butterflyweed seedlings

My trellis isn't ready yet (stupid tree situation), how tall should it be? I have an area I think would be perfect.

I have moon flower and morning glory growing in the same pot. Lets see if I can get the right picture.



If you look at the bottom leaves they are the Moon Flower, the leaves in the beginning seem to have a different shape leaf then like with the picture from my last years Moon flower the leaves are heart shaped like a Morning Glory.





The picture below is last years Moon flower. I love these I plant them with morning glories to have flowers all day.




Hope that helps
