I once had a moonflower that grew big and tall, it was not a vine. I grew it from a seed and would like to find where to get them again, the ones I have now grow like a vine. Any suggestions??

This is a good example of the need for naming plants by their binomial nomenclature, or scientific name.

Those moonflowers that are a vine are usually a type of morning glory, as well as many other vines being called a moonflower.

The one that you are speaking of is probably the flower of a Datura! Some can be large shrubs, or Large single stemmed flowers. Knowing the name of them will allow you to find seeds online, or at nurseries.
