The Q&A Archives: Where Can I Find Perennial Morninglories?

Question: You would think I could find a seed packet or seedling of PERNNIAL morninglories about anywhere, right?
Here in Sonoma and Marin Counties (N. California) I have never seen a seed packet, and when I ask about PERNNNIAL morninglories at nurseries they look at me with disbelief that I cannot find such a common plant, until they look at their own inventory and find that they have no seed packets which say perennial on them.

Indeed, a product search on Burpee's website turns up NOTHING for morninglories or perennial morninglories. And there are no morninglories under your "Flowers>Perennials" tab on your site.

Can anyone direct me to a place (online or otherwise) where I can get this vine?
Thank you, Richard

Answer: Perennial Morning Glory is either Convolvulus althacoides tenuissimus (dwarf Morning Glory), or Convuolvulus cneorum (Bush Morning Glory). In your zone C. sabatiums (ground Morning Glory) is also considered a perennial. Seeds for all are available from Thompson & Morgan, Inc. (800) 274-7333, or Johnny's Selected Seed (207) 437-4301.
