Product Description

Ipomoea tricolor

  | 100 Seeds |

This is a White mutation of the very popular Heavenly Blue.This was discovered by Gilbert Bently and won the All American award. Pearly Gates was made available to US gardeners in 1940. Pearly Gates Morning Glory vine is a prolific bloomer from early summer until the first frost. Provide a trellis or pergola, and this climber will climb it.  Blooms are 3-4 inches across and pure white, set on deep green heart shaped leaves. If you want white Morning Glories to self-sow the following spring, then leave some of the dead flowers on the vine in order for it to drop its flower seed. Climbs to 10 feet. Sorry, We cannot ship any Morning Glories to AZ, MI, or PR.  Flowers are attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.

100 Seeds per Package.

How to Grow from the Ipomea Family - Morning Glory Seeds - Moonflower 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.

  • Sow Morning Glory seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/4" of soil. Water thoroughly once. Thin or space plants to a final distance of 6" apart. They will tolerate a little crowding if there is ample supports for their vines to spread up and out. Keep soil at 70° F-germination is in 7-21 days. Could be sown direct after all danger of frost. Plant 6-8 seeds per foot, then thin to 12 inches apart.

  • Morning Glory plants like full sun. Add a general purpose fertilizer when planting them, then once a month after that

  • Once your Morning Glories are established, they should grow well, even if left unattended. Soil should be moist, but not wet. Water them during dry periods, once or twice per week.

  • Morning Glory are half hardy annuals. They will often survive the first frost, especially if grown along the house or other buildings. Morning glories have very few problems with insects and disease. If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide. They will not survive a hard frost or freeze.

  • Morning Glory plants like full sun. They will grow in average to poor soils. Add compost prior to planting, if your soil is poor.
