comment What is the difference between light and dark moonflower seeds?
No, the one we commonly grow is I. purpurea or I. tricolor in the UK. All are half hardy here anyway.

comment What is the difference between light and dark moonflower seeds?
The one we usually grow here in the UK is a light blue, sky blue if you like. I'm wondering if you're talking about some other plant, but when I googled moonflower, it pointed me towards Ipomea, for which we in the UK have the common name Morning Glory rather than moonflower. What is the latin name of the plant you mean?
