These gorgeous morning glories vines provide new color to your fall garden

We've been waiting all summer and now the morning glories have finally bloomed. There's no point in trying to rush them, you can't be impatient with them. You just have to resign yourself to the fact that you won't see any flowers until early fall. Our first products came out a few days ago, in the first week of September.

It's very satisfying when it finally blooms, perhaps because the long anticipation has something to do with it.

Its late start to flowering means that its flowering season is short, lasting only until the first frost.

Morning glory flowers are very eye-catching and almost glow in the morning sunlight.

Morning glories are annual plants, which means they germinate, grow, flower and produce seeds, all in one year, then die back in the winter.

The type of morning glories we grow in flower gardens is native to North America. While there are other herbaceous plants called morning glories, they are completely different plants, causing a lot of confusion among people who have never grown morning glories in the garden.

Because it grows as a vine, most gardeners plant morning glories on trellises, poles or other upright structures rather than letting them cascade to the ground. They can easily reach 10 feet or more tall if they have something to grow on. They climb by wrapping around things, so they are unable to climb a sheer wall unless the gardener attaches twine or netting to give the vines something to wrap around.

Morning glory vines will twist in on themselves as they grow.

Although they will grow reluctantly in shady areas, morning glories truly thrive in full sun.

Some gardeners plant morning glory seeds directly into the soil where they want the vines to grow. The seeds are somewhat sensitive to temperature so it is best to sow the seeds when the soil temperature reaches 60 degrees or so.
