How long until morning glories from seed become mature enough to see flowers?

Hi Tim, I am new at growing MGs, but I think it will depend on the variety and the temperature, I see you are in sunny CA. so you should get blooms earlier there. It is very challenging for me in my zone but I did get a lot of nice blooms this year. I started my seeds in late March inside and got blooms July 22nd. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the responses. I have both grandpa ott and heavenly blue. Heavenly blue is already quite a bit bigger, 6 inch plant in a couple weeks. Ott is only 2 inch

You ought to see flower buds in a couple of months. Grandpa Ott's Ipomoea purpurea is a veritable seed making machine. If you want to prevent volunteer vines in the spring be advised to collect every seed pod before they release the seeds to the ground.

Joseph, I sure do agree about Grandpa Ott and it's seed production, I have collected lots for next year and there are still a lot of pods ripening. Do you think I need worry about volunteer vines in my zone.? Shrug!

The seeds may survive your freezing winter, Margaret. If so, the seedlings are easy to pull out.
