Morning Glory
Split Personality

(Ipomoea purpurea)

This graceful, delicately split, star-shaped flower will add a unique look to your garden. Like all morning glories, the blooms open in the cool of morning, and in fall the blooms will stay open all day. Striking in hanging baskets and as a ground cover, morning glory is commonly used to cover fences and trellises. To make the seeds easier to germinate, soak them in water 12 to 24 hours before planting.
