Morning Glory Plants.  

The 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, lamp-post or trellis.  

The Morning-Glory, in the family Convolvulaceae contains at least 50 genera and more than 1000 species. The Morning glory flowers start to fade a 2 hours before the petals start showing visible curling.   

                       

                     

Caring for Morning Glory 

Give a good support system to the upcoming vine. 

Morning glories are favourites of sun, so do not over water them. 

Morning glories are excellent reseeders. So once you plant them, there is no need to replant them. 

To reduce their reseeding capability remove all the dead vines after they are killed by frost.
