Morning Glory

“Morning Glories are beautiful flowers. They grow on vines that are long and twisty, and they will grow on anything if you let them. I love Morning Glories and I hope you do too.”


Kid Critic

Ipomoea purpurea

Zone: 3-10

The Morning Glory is a wonderful twining vine that grows very quickly. It likes to grow on a trellis, trees, fences and more. They have bright, trumpet-shaped flowers. They are usually grown as annuals but most of them will reseed themselves and return year after year. Morning Glories have heart-shaped leaves. They come in shades of blue, purple, pink, scarlet, or white. They like well-drained soil that is not very rich, and like partial or full sun.
