One of my fondest memories of childhood is seeing the blue morning glory flowers appearing each morning on the light pole, banana trees, and breadfruit tree in the front of our yard. Well, the plants are still there; and today I saw a morning glory vine in bloom again on the barbed tape on our fence.The morning glory vine is popularly grown as an ornamental plant, but in some places it is considered to be an invasive weed. The vine blooms flowers of white, red, blue, purple and yellow; the flowers are funnel-shaped and beautiful! The morning glory vines grow well in full sun or partial shade; they grow from seeds and unfortunately, they are not known to survive transplanting.
Morning glory vines however, will self-sow, and grow again year after year.Morning glory vines grow to heights of approx. 10 – 15 ft. and they bloom repeatedly. Each flower lasts for a single morning and dies by afternoon, it also fades in color as the day goes on. Please note that the seeds of this plant contain an ergoline alkaloid . . . d-lysergic acid amide (LSA), and are poisonous if ingested.
