    • email print
  • The moonflower, which has a unique blooming pattern, is showing its display of plentiful white flowers at the home of John and Nancy Parks, 1522 Hickory Drive, in Chillicothe. The plant's flowers only come out at night, between 8 and 8:30, and bloom throughout the night (hence the common name "moonflower"), wilting once the sun hits them in the morning. Parks said that the plant will bloom several nights in a row, then quit blooming for a couple of weeks, and then start blooming again. This is one of two moonflower plants the Parkses planted this year.
