I'm in love with morning glories. I've only grown Heavenly Blue and White Moon Vine. What's your favorite? What has the largest bloom? Is there one that stays open longer than others?

I love Blue Silk. Rose Silk is beautiful too. Sunrise Mix is awesome. All the ones I named stay open late into the day. Variegated foilage as well. I LOVE morning glories and am also on the lookout for ones I havn't grown! Blue Silk produces flowers as large as my hand.

I like them all

I've grown "Heavenly Blue", "Flying Saucer" and "Scarlet O'Hara"... next year I've going to do "Grandpa Otts" which is my personal favorite.

We are in Zone 5 so morning glory is not a "perennial" but I grew up in California where you could grow them all year round. The girl in the apartment next door had taken string and attached it from the fence to her roof so she had a morning glory patio roof... very very cool!

I like ones that BLOOM!!! I am still waiting for mine to bloom(heavenly blue)I do see the buds as 'large' as a pinhead but they are taking their sweet time. You know how a watched pot never boils? well a watched glory never blooms is my motto these days... : )

Grandpa Otts and Kinola's Black. I like deep colors.

I love I. acuminata, and if you can keep it from touching the ground it's wonderful, lol. Otherwise, see the post about the worst gardening experience.

Oh nigella-THAT'S what I'm waiting and waiting to see on my trellis. VERY pretty!
Ebang and Butterb.-LOL I had no problem growing moonflowers!
I guess that's why I am insulted that my MG won't bloom. : )

RE: What's Your Favorite Morning Glory??

Well Babs... if its not one thing its another LOL.

RE: What's Your Favorite Morning Glory??

For anyone who is having problems getting their morning glorys to bloom, you probably have planted your MG in too rich of a soil. MG like poor soils. Too rich and all you will get is leaves. This is also true for moon vine. Fairly poor, dry, soil is the key to spectacular morning glory vines and flower production.

I don't know what it is called, but there is someone growing one on a street I pass a lot- the stuff is growing up a telephone pole, and in the morning it is like a huge blue pillar. SO pretty.

ButterbeanBaby...I planted Scarlett O'Hara seeds this year. I am glad to see that in zone 5 your were able to as well. I am DYING to see what this one looks like. So far I have yet to even see anything come up. I planted them about 2 1/2 weeks ago. With this yucky weather I am wondering if I will even see these at all this year.

Does anyone know where Blue Silk morning glory seeds can be purchased? I haven't been able to find them anywhere.
