Something is magical about Morning Glories in the Garden that blooms gloriously in the morning and then closes as the day turns to night. All Morning Glory plants produce attractive funnel shaped blossoms of various shades and colors. Like whites, reds. blues and purples with heart shaped leaves. Blooming usually occurs anywhere from May through September.
Morning Glories don’t like to be well fed. If they are, they will grow huge and lush vines, but won’t flower. Is it past the Summer Solstice date of June 21st ? Morning Glories are “short day” plants, meaning that they will only set flowers when the days are shorter than 12 hours. As summer continues past the Solstice (the longest day of the year), the days shorten and nights lengthen, eventually triggering blooms. Depending on your geographical location, some gardeners will not see blooms until late July, August, or even early September in temperate areas.
The big, fragrant flowers unfurl to greet the morning sun, then close up in the afternoon. Colors include white, red, pink, purple, blue, and bicolor. Give your Morning Glory plant something to climb up. They will entwine themselves around obstacles. They are perfect grown on a fence, lamppost or trellis.
Morning Glory are grown from seeds. The seed coat is very thick. Nick Morning Glory seeds, or soak it in warm water overnight to soften it ,and this will increase germination rates. Native to tropical and subtropical regions of the world, this genus includes many ornamental twining vines. The varieties described below may self-sow, but they do not spread by underground runners. They have hard seeds; to encourage faster sprouting, either nick the seeds’ coating or soak them overnight in water before planting. Sow seeds in place after frost danger is past, or for an earlier start, sow seeds indoors then set plants 6"–8" apart. Avoid transplanting late, as the plants like a full season. Use Morning Glory vines on a fence or trellis. If you grow in containers, provide stakes or a wire cylinder for support.Sorry, We cannot ship any Morning Glories to AZ, MI, or PR.
