You would think I could find a seed packet or seedling of PERNNIAL morninglories about anywhere, right?
Here in Sonoma and Marin Counties (N. California) I have never seen a seed packet, and when I ask about PERNNNIAL morninglories at nurseries they look at me with disbelief that I cannot find such a common plant, until they look at their own inventory and find that they have no seed packets which say perennial on them.

Indeed, a product search on Burpee's website turns up NOTHING for morninglories or perennial morninglories. And there are no morninglories under your "Flowers>Perennials" tab on your site.

Can anyone direct me to a place (online or otherwise) where I can get this vine?
Thank you, Richard

Perennial Morning Glory is either Convolvulus althacoides tenuissimus (dwarf Morning Glory), or Convuolvulus cneorum (Bush Morning Glory). In your zone C. sabatiums (ground Morning Glory) is also considered a perennial. Seeds for all are available from Thompson & Morgan, Inc. (800) 274-7333, or Johnny's Selected Seed (207) 437-4301.
