No more Japanese M.G's for me!

Although I think they are beautiful and I would love to have them in my garden I just cannot get them to grow. This is my 3rd year trying them and so far they have still only reached about 3 inches in height.All my others are growing and blooming like crazy now,so sad to say I have to admit defeat.

Dont give up...Try try again...I had a bad year this year too..Too cold I think...

Yes, the JMG's always grow much more slowly than the other kind, but they are worth the wait. Although they seldom have time to set seed here in Zone 5, I usually do get at least a few blooms from each vine. You might want to try Hatsu Arashi. It tends to bloom earlier than the others, generally when it is only a few inches tall!

I am zone 5 (southern NH) and planted some Japanese Morning Glory in about mid-June. They are shorter than my other "native morning glorys, not least because I received those as already started seeds in beginning June.

However, one is about 3 ft tall, the other about 1 foot (not as tall because the original planted seeds kept getting dug out by a chipmunk, until after a couple weeks I got the message through my thick head and started a seed inside)

I fully expect some flowers in the next couple of weeks.
