Morning Glories and Moonflowers Combo

My friend Jan Vinyard passed on an impactful combination that is easy to grow. Combine white morning glories (left) and moonflowers on the same archway or trellis. As the morning glories are fading , the moonflowers are showing off with beautiful flowers and their incredible fragrance. The fragrance attracts a certain moth to help fertilize the blooms. I tried this two years ago in a container that was too small for a Western facing site. This year, I'll be growing one of each of the vines in a larger container and I plan to add a few 'Diamond Frost' euphorbia at the base. I am also planning to plant both vines on an arch way on the side of my house Spring.
