The Q&A Archives: Morning Glory Identification

Question: I purchased your Morning Glory "Heavenly Blue" and have started them inside. The sprouts have a split leaf, two lobes and not the heart shaped leaf we are accustomed to seeing. Is this correct for the plants we bought? I am guessing those are initial starting leaves, but do not want to waste growing time on wrong plants.

Answer: The first leaves of a seedling are often as you describe, and completely different from the true leaves of a plant. Your Morning Glory seedlings will produce the heart shaped leaves you're familiar with in just a few weeks. Don't give up on your seedlings!
