  1. My beloved mother-in-law used to grow these – sweet memories – thank you Eliza.

  2. Alice Pratt says:

    Amazing color….they must self-sow…come to think of it, this must be the 1st year I don’t have any, from a plant I bought maybe 20 years (or more) ago.

  3. Widdershins says:

    A quiet fanfare. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Jet Eliot says:

    I never tire of morning glories, so vivid and hopeful and peaceful.

  5. Jim R says:

    Morning Glories…always a favorite.

  6. Love the color ๐ŸŒธ

  7. Trini Lind says:

    So lovely! ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ

    I love morning glories but unfortunately they’re thugs here. I chose to ignore all the warnings and planted one in the ground in my former garden. All that bright blue color was wonderful for a time but it spread everywhere and eventually became a magnet for the giant whitefly. It took me a good 2 years to eradicate it. I expect your winters keep it reined in?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, winters interrupt the cycle. They self-sow, but so far they haven’t been a problem as the seedlings are easy to pull. Perennial hedge bindweed (Calystegia sepium) on the other hand is a nightmare in the garden.

    Such restful autumn colours.

  10. Jewels says:

    Ah there’s your morning glories, finally in bloom! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Eliza Waters says:

      ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, these Grandpa Ott have no problem blooming in July-August, but the Heavenly Blues still haven’t bloomed! They need poor soil, I guess. I’ve got masses of leaves though!

  11. Brian Skeys says:

    I often grow morning glories, I have planted some late this year, all leaf at the moment.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Grandpa Ott are good self-sowing annuals and will bloom after a couple months, but the Heavenly Blue are a disappointment with no flowers. Frost will end them before too long.

  12. Kathy Sturr says:

    Glorious!!! Love Grandpa Ott’s. They are growing all over my garden, self-sown. Heavenly Blue has been blooming for me but the leaves are all yellow – still pretty. Sure make for great mornings Eliza!
