Description

These quick-growing, heirloom morning glories climb and ramble, decorating with their pretty heart-shaped leaves and blossoms along the way. Flowers open to greet the day and stay open until mid-day or all day if it is cloudy. Each day a new set of blossoms form, which gives them an ever-changing allure and reminds us to enjoy the moment. Grown as an annual, although perennial in USDA zones 10 and warmer. Deer resistant. Caution: Most parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.

Special Care: Seeds with hard coats, like morning glories, can benefit from scarification, a means of breaking through the hard outer covering to allow moisture to penetrate. There are a few ways to accomplish this: either nick the seeds with sandpaper or an nail clipper, or soak them in water for 12 to 24 hours prior to sowing.
