This is the first year that I’ve grown Morning Glories. My favorite daughter-in-law and I did a girl’s day out in early July that included visiting a favorite gardening center. While there I bought Morning Glories (following her lead – she’d spied them first). I planted them that night, right on the edge of the herb garden. The next morning I had one bloom and it was lovely. Later that month, I had two blooms. The other day I was out dead-heading and weeding when I noticed how much they had spread their vines around the low trellis surrounding the herb garden but it was afternoon and the blooms had closed. This morning there was no denying them, they were in full bloom, loads of blossoms. They begged to have their pictures taken for the blog. “Over here” they beckoned me. I couldn’t resist.
What I love about these is the deep color with the lighter “throat”. The dark color is almost iridescent and they appear to have little solar lights, lit from within. I’m hooked! They are my 2015 Favorite Flower Discovery (that’s a thing as of today).
