I have two morning glory vines. They look rather sad and are not blooming much. Will they die back for the winter? Do we leave the vine in place or cut back?

If your vine is an annual morning glory (genus Ipomoea), then it won't come back next year (unless you have a frost-free winter--then it may survive). You'd be better off planning to start fresh seeds early next spring.

Other plants refered to as morning glories are in the genus Convolvulus; some of these are evergreen perennial that blooms from June through November. If this is the plant you have, then probably what you're experiencing is the last of the blossoms for this year. You can prune the plant back in late winter and it should perk up by springtime, sending out new growth and setting new blossoms.
