This is another of my many favorite plants. It is called a Moonflower (Ipomoea alba). The blooms open at dusk and will usually only last the next day. It is considered an annual but I have it in a pot on my deck that I put in the basement over the winter. Everything dies down but comes back out in the spring when I get it out. I had one plant for over 5 years before I had to buy another. If you'd like some seeds when they are ready leave me a comment and I'll get back to you. If you enlarge the picture you can see the seed pod which forms if you don't take the flower off.
