Morning Glories are fast growing plants with light green, heart shaped leaves. They produce a non-stop show of trumpet shaped, sometimes fragrant flowers from early summer until the first hard frost. Each flower only lasts for a single day.
Morning Glory flowers will attract both hummingbirds and butterflies to your gardens.
They may die in the winter, but Morning Glories readily re-seed themselves each year.
Morning Glories should be planted in an area where they will receive full sun for most of the day.
The soil shouldn't be too fertile nor kept too moist because these conditions tend to stimulate production of lush foliage but with very few flowers.
Morning Glory seeds are considered poisonous and should not be ingested.
