I'm asking this for my Oklahoma transplant neighbor here in SA Tx.

Has anyone heard of or know the botanical names of:
1] Moon Flower?
2] River Willow?

Would also like to know of a supplier.

Thanks in advance.

A google search revealed Ipomoea alba for moonflower.
Salix fluviatilis for River willow.

ekr470,

By Google by Golly !
Thanks much and I guess I should'a been able to do that myself.
I'm still amazed at what these poooters can find.
I'll look at our local Botanical Center for leads on suppliers.

Thanks again.

Hi Zipper,
You may want to keep this site handy as well. It's great for checking on references of mailorder nurseries. Quite an eye opener!
