The Q&A Archives: Encouraging Morning Glory

Question: I would like to plant morning glories and moonflowers in a windowbox and let them trail down over a porch railing. Will this work, or do they want to grow up? Thanks! Susan Dynarski Somerville, MA

Answer: Morning Glories and moon flowers twine as they grow. The shoots of these plants wrap around adjacent structures...even themselves. With no support and a bit of weight, they will grow downward...but will have a tendency to become entangled.
