Purple Morning Glory, Tall Morning Glory
A native of Mexico, purple morning glory is a highly popular annual vine known for its pretty funnel-shaped flowers that open in the morning. This vigorous twining climber has green three-lobed or ovate leaves on hairy stems. In the heat of summer it produces many funnel-shaped flowers that may be purple, bright pink, white or purple-blue or bicolored. Some of its better cultivars include 'Grandpa Ott', which has violet-purple blooms with a rose star and white eye, and the white-flowered 'Milky Way'.
Purple morning glory grows best in sheltered sites away from high winds. It requires full sun and fertile soil with good drainage and grows best on trellises, arbors or fences. Plants will gently self-seed if allowed to.
