Heavenly Blue Morning Glory variety can easily be grown from seeds. When people think of this flowering vine, they often think of Heavenly Blue with its intense sky blue blooms with white throats. The blooms are heavy from summer until frost, and it drops its own flower seeds to produce a display for next year's season. Typically, the flowers will open in the morning and then close again in afternoon. Heavenly Blue vine is perfect for covering unsightly buildings, tumbling over fences, or decorating any vertical garden structure from the mailbox to the lamppost.

Morning Glory Flowers are Colorful, fast-growing climbers with fluted flowers and heart-shaped leaves Morning Glories are wonderful climbers, often growing as high as you let them! Train morning glories over a pergola or arch, or use as a dense groundcover. The vine grows quickly—up to 15 feet in one season—and can self-seed fairly easily, too.

Therefore, choose where you put this plant wisely! Remember to soak seeds in warm water before planting to speed up the germination process. Morning glories are annual climbers with slender stems, heart-shaped leaves, and trumpet-shaped flowers of pink, purple-blue, magenta, or white. They have beautifully-shaped blooms that unfurl in the sun and romantic tendrils that lend old-fashioned charm.

PLANTING MORNING GLORIES • Grow morning glories in a sunny site. They need a lot of sun to bloom their best! • Plant in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. • Choose a site that is sheltered from cold or drying winds. • Sow morning glory seeds early in the season once the ground has warmed to 64°F (18°C). • Germination rates are improved by filing down the seeds just long enough to break the coat, then soaking them for 24 hours before planting. This encourages them to send out a root. (They look like little worms.) • Cover lightly with ¼-inch of soil. Space about 6 inches apart. Water thoroughly at planting.

Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer after planting. Do not over fertilize, or the vine may grow more foliage than flowers. • Support climbers and trailing species with structures like trellises, pergolas, or arches. • Morning glories are low-maintenance; just be sure to water during dry periods. • Mulch to retain moisture and avoid weeds. • If you don’t want the plant to reseed itself, be sure to snip off old flowers before they turn
