The Q&A Archives: Morning Glorie & Moonflower Leaves

Question: I'd like to know the difference in looks of the leaves of Morning Glories & Moonflowers. I sowed Morning Glory seeds this year where I sowed Moonflower seeds last year - now something is coming up & I can't tell which it is. Morning Glories from this year or Moonflowers from last year that have possibly re-seeded themselves.

Thanks a bunch...Susan Hedrick, Holden, MO Zone 5

Answer: These two plants are closely related and the leaves look very similar. Moonflower leaves are a little bigger. In my experience, the moon flowers did not reseed well so my bet would be on the morning glories, especially this early in the season.
