Not All Morning Glories Are Thugs; Some Are Very Friendly!

Many gardeners hate morning glories, thinking they are invasive and can take over the garden, especially purpureas. They can be troublesome if not controlled, but it's easy to keep them from getting out of control.

Great pics Ronnie (and article).
There is a red morning glory as well. Quite a small flower.

Thanks J! I have that one too, can never capture the true red!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
