As a comment about Lindheimer's Morning Glory (Ipomoea lindheimeri), luvsgrtdanes wrote:

Lindheimer is one of the few morning glories that has a fragrance. Very suttle and some can't even smell it.
It is perennial to zone 7 and can be overwintered in colder climates in a greenhouse or warm south-facing window. It grows well indoors. Very easy to start from seeds. If you keep it watered well and fed with a good bloom booster fertilizer, it will do great for you in the ground or in a pot.

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...
