Our daughter bought moonflower seeds from another source and in identical growing conditions her vines produced blooms with the beautiful perfume one expects from moonflowers. We purchased moonflower plants from Select Seeds and the blooms are completely odorless. Needless to say, they are a big disappointment!
Dear Lois, We are sorry to hear that your moonflowers were not very fragrant. Environmental conditions that typically go unnoticed, such as the presence of bacteria in the soil or air, can inhibit some flowers' ability to give off fragrance. Other factors include nutrient and carbon availability, as well as air quality or heavy precipitation in the area. Please let us know if you would like a credit or a replacement. We're here to help! ~Allison @ Select Seeds
