Morning Glory Surprise

My Mother did not intend to have a whole garden of Morning Glories.  It just happened that way.  They were off on vacation on the west coast when it was time to plant some flowers.  When they got home they were busy with other things…and she never got around to planting anything in this garden.

Last year she had a couple of Morning Glory plants that climbed the windmill.

Moms Morning glories

The left over seed sprouted and the vines grew and grew.

They are blooming quite nicely.

Morning Glories two

They have climbed everything they could…here they have almost choked off the rain gauge.

Morning Glories three

Sometimes a few leftover seeds and ample water are all you need for a beautiful garden.

  1. I have heard that morning glories are not only beautiful, but also very persistent and grow without any tending. I see now that it is true! :-)

  2. Oh yes. We have those wild purple morning glories here in Louisiana. They will take over the whole yard and any buildings, too, if you let them!
    But they are pretty.
    Have a wonderful day!

  4. Volunteer plants are usually more hardy than those planted from a packet. Your mother's morning glory is beautiful.

  6. I love them too, and oddly enough they really don't flourish until the heat of summer subsides around here. You would think they would bloom like crazy in the heat but they don't.

    They are gorgeous...

  8. Those are so pretty! And to think I planted a whole pack of morning glory seeds and not even one came up. I've never had a morning glory vine.

  9. I've always loved morning glories but with no garden area in the back I have to enjoy them in the neighbour's yard instead. These are so lovely and easy care too.

  10. So pretty! Reminds me of a tale mama and brother told....grandpa gave Larry a box full of OLD seeds to play with. They had the prettiest garden ever that summer! lol

  11. I love morning glories. I have blue ones this year and they, too, have taken over a big area, climbing right over a bird bath and across the back of a garden bench, not content to stay on the trellis provided.

  12. I grow Morning Glories too but they're nothing like the ones in your mother's yard. I think the fallen seeds must rot in our wet winters because I have never had a volunteer. In fact, I almost have to baby the plants for the first while to get them started.

  13. Beautiful! Although I can't imagine them settling for being contained in that little planter bed ;)

  17. I guess that will be my solution for next year. The volunteer glories in the corn rows do better than mine that I plant in the ground. It is a beautiful color for morning glories.
