What are the pros? Easy germination, shade-tolera
What are the cons? Nothing to dislike
Oh. My. Goodness! What a splendid array of colours! Not only is this species of morning glory beautiful, it also tolerates shade! The deep green heart-shaped leaves are lovely too. I was amazed at how the seeds readily germinated within just over a week of direct-sowing them in my little ghetto garden in downtown L.A. in an area where I have had trouble getting anything else to grow, and then proceeded to wind their way up a rather unsightly trellis cobbled together from scrap wood and wire and hardware mesh. I was further delighted to see them start to bloom in the entire variety of colours shown in the photo, dressing up a part of my little culinary garden that is normally a bit of a weedy mess. They even put up with scorching temperatures all summer and made their way up into the guava tree that shades that spot. Now a second generation is starting to climb and bloom, and the flowers are true to type, so this is a keeper I never want to be without!
