Garden Alphabet: Morning Glory (Convolvulaceae)

Morning Glory (Convolvulaceae)

I love morning glory, even though here in California they can get a bit invasive. This picture comes from a neighbors garden, as I really don’t have enough sun to grow them where I would like. The shocking colors make such a statement no matter what colors they  are against. Morning Glory are also fairly carefree, growing as they wish without needing much attention except maybe to cut them back every so often.

Garden Alphabet: Morning Glory from A Gardener's Notebook (http://DouglasEWelch.com/agn/)

“Morning glory is the common name for over 1,000 species of flowering plants in the family Convolvulaceae, whose current taxonomy and systematics are in flux. Morning glory species belong to many genera, some of which are: Calystegia,Convolvulus, Ipomoea, Merremia, Rivea, Astripomoea, Operculina,Stictocardia, Argyreia, Lepistemon” — Wikipedia.org
