Glorious Morning Glories

I have never had morning glories before. I had purchased some already started at an Amish nursery with the intention of planting them by a new trellis over our well pipe (it sticks up quite a bit from the ground and is really ugly!). Well, I didn't have time to landscape around the pipe, so I stuck the little tender plants in a pot so that they would survive...and survive they did! I'm thrilled and even had to borrow a trellis from Mom so that they could wander and blossom to their full potential. It's a joy to look out each morning to see what has bloomed, and I love the purple and blue colors. They ARE glorious, and I have every intention to be more serious about planting them next year.

I love morning glories...they will produce little brown seed pods, just break them open and throw them down and they will come up every year...sometimes in places you don't want

Oh Michele, they are so lovely and make a good disguise :o) Your previous post is inspirational. God bless you and yours.
