Details

Although not traditionally a wedding flower--as the blooms don't last when cut--the growth habit of the common morning glory is a parable of good relationships. Its vines are strong and grow steadily, but it requires a framework of support to reach its maximum potential. Its blooms come steadily and profusely, but require immediate appreciation, as they last but a single morning before fading. And at its core is a hard-coated seed that can adapt to any circumstance, self-sowing readily and thriving even in difficult soils. In fact, like the best marriages, morning glories produce the most blooms when faced with distress: drought and low-nutrient soils lead to spectacular displays of flowery love. [When grown in front of a window, the vines will form a dense screen--and create some romatnic privacy for your own marriage's flowering!]
Number of Seeds 100
Spacing in Row 12"
Spacing Between Rows 36"

Direct sow outdoors after all danger of frost has passed, or start indoors 2-3 weeks early. If transplanting, take care not to disturb the roots. Seeds take 5-14 days to germinate. To hasten, nick the seeds and soak in water for 24 hours, then sow. Plant near a fence or wall, or provide a trellis. Morning glories will grow to 6-10' in height. Plant in full sun or partial shade. Will self-sow.
