Morning Glory - Knowledgebase Question

San Diego, CA
Question by dvoros

I bought a couple of your "Blue Dawn" Morning glories and they are doing great! I was out watering them and I noticed that on the vines they have 2 different types of leaves, one with 3 lobes or pints and the other type is heart shaped. I was wondering why one plant has 2 differently shaped leaves. Thanks :)

What you've noticed is quite natural for Morning Glories. The juvenile leaves are arrow-shaped (or heart-shaped as you've described them). The lobed leaves are fully developed or mature leaves. Glad you're having such great success with your Morning Glories!
