Morning glory

My morning glory has it's seed leaves so far. Morning Glorys can be blue, red, pink, purple and white and attract butterflies and humming birds. Many gardeners love them because they are easy and fast to grow and keep growing in poor, dry soils. The vines can reach up to fifteen feet in one growing season! They are called morning Glorys because they usually bloom in the morning and close at night. Blue is the most commen color for morning Glorys. Like most plants it requires water, soil and sunlight to grow.
