Morning Glories are fast-growing, vigorous climbing vines with heart-shaped leaves and profuse, brightly colored blooms. Grandpa Ott produces striking deep purple, funnel-shaped flowers with magenta stars in the throats.
Provide a sturdy trellis, pergola or other support for the vines, which get large -- and heavy -- by the middle of the summer. Vines grow up to 15' tall.
Morning glories have tough seed coats. To speed up the germination process, soak seeds in warm water for several hours before planting.
