The Moonlight Strain caught me by surprise with it's towering height and wonderful fragrance. It was planted in full sun in zone 7b, It needed to be tied to the arbor for support, as the bloom head was so heavy and full the whole plant threatened to topple from it's majestic height of over 8'. Now in it's third year in my garden, I have 8 or 9 of them coming up alongside the latest giant.
