« Morning Glory Comes to Call | Main | Color Renegades »



The unidentified flower I posted a couple of days ago looks a lot like yours except with a purple center. Several folks suggested in was bindweed.


You will love the authentic morning glories... a wonderful vine! I grow several, but a favorite is Caprice. I will try to post a photo of it on my blog sometime.


the leaves look like morning glory. How big is the flower? An inch or less would indicate bindweed, but those leaves and flower look larger??? Maybe I am just being too optimistic?


Thanks, Felicia -- that's good to know.

Connie -- I'll watch for Caprice in the seed catalogs.

Muum -- I'm an optimist too, but I just don't think I'm going to take any chances with this. I'll wait and plant seeds next year to make sure it's the real thing. Thanks!

Gotta Garden

I had the same experience with seeing the white flowers in my little wooded nice...and then...yikes!

I planted one seed of Grandpa Otts' morning glory (deep purple, very pretty)...and oh's all over...pulling things down (like my lobelia!)...growing on everything...This, years later! Thing sets seed easily (apparently)...and nothing stops it, not weather extremes, you name it! Beware!
