Morning Glory

My morning glory finally had a decent number of flowers today -- seven in total :) Too bad the blooms last less than a day.... but through the magic of photography, they can last a whole lot longer!! ;)

Dawn, my morning glory is in a planter. You can plant them directly into the ground as well, but I they they re-seed themselves. If you want a big batch of morning glories, then that's fine -- if not, maybe it's best to keep them in planters. Although even in a planter, they send shoots out everywhere. Mine is making its way through the juniper bush and towards the front door -- it's almost like an evil being in a horror movie or something!! ;)

My morning glory is looking rather sad and pathetic at the moment :( It's still flowering, but the leaves are all turning yellow or dying or falling off :( I hope the plant will produce some seeds before it buys the farm. I'll let you know if I end up with any seeds.

I was told that you can propagate a morning glory from the tuber root, and possibly from cuttings. I just bought this plant in July, so I haven't tried propagating it yet. We'll see what happens....

newfie, that's so kind of you to say!! I've really been enjoying taking pictures of our flower garden this summer :) I think I'm going to put together a collection of some of my favourite pics and group them together somewhere in the house (maybe on the big, empty dining room wall!!)

Lisi, I know what you mean..... the colour of these flowers is just so amazing!! I hope I'll be able to propogate the plant and grow more just like it next summer -- fingers crossed!!
