The Q&A Archives: Morning Glories

Question: Does a perennial variety of morning glory exist that is purple in color? If not, what colors of perennial morning glory exist? I've ordered your '98 catalog but haven't received it yet.

Answer: There's a Ground Morning Glory (Convolvulus mauritanichus) that's a perennial. It has gray-green leaves and lavender blue flowers. It blooms from June - November.<br><br>Another perennial morning glory is Ipomoea acuminata, or Blue Dawn Flower. It's a vigorous grower, great for banks or walls. It has dark green leaves and bright lavender blue flowers.<br><br>I don't know if lavender blue qualifies as purple, but you might consider either of these plants. And, if you ordered a '98 catalog, rest assured it will arrive soon; they are usually mailed in December.
