How Big is a Moonflower Bloom?

How big is a moonflower bloom? Let me show you!

If you use the lens cap of my camera as an indicator this moonflower bloom on our arbor is roughly 6-8 inches in diameter! Below the moonflower is a purple sweet potato vine. I think the dark foliage and bright white blooms look great together. Perhaps this year I'll attempt to train the sweet potato vine to climb the arbor with its white blooming cousin rather than sprawl on the ground everywhere. Of course it does look good sprawling!
