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 article . . . I love all MG's. Lovey dubby

A friend gave me Blue Dawn once and warned they ould be invasive and they were. The blooms and leaves were huge! But I love them and love a freestyle garden so MG's work well for me. Thumbs up

I love your photos, especially the blue spotted, two-tone, and striped.

Thank you Becky!
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...

I had morning glories once (they died off and I forgot) but what better welcome to the morning than seeing their cheerful faces with morning coffee or whatever you drink. I will plant some next spring and thanks for the beautiful pictures!
