About the product

Native to Mexico and Central America, common morning glory is a warm weather annual twining vine that is ornamentaly grown for its attractive flowers and broad cordate ovate leaves.
It will grow up to 2-3 m long in a single season. Trumpet-shaped blue with darker blue stripes flowers bloom from July to October.
Flowers open in the morning and close in the afternoon, hence the common name.
Used to cover walls, pergolas and balconies.
Common morning glory is easily grown in average, consistently moist, well-drained soils in full sun. This vine needs a support structure upon which to grow.
Plants grown in containers could be brought inside in fall for overwintering, albeit with some difficulty, but most gardeners simply start new seed indoors each spring.
