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.
