Sues Morning Glory (Ipomoea purpurea (Morning glory))

I do like the almost opaque nature of the Morning Glory flower.

I have never grown these, but I am always struck by their translucent beauty as in this one Meanie.

They're not really my thing, except for that very reason Drc! Great for filling a space in a hurry, and totally pest free too.

i do love these, shame the flowers go over so quickly though..

Ideal spot is against a SW facing fence or wall to get the best balance of growth and length of flower lasting SL.

Cracking shot, Meanie! I love the way these seem different shades, depending on the light.

Thanks Karen - there are several varieties in there, so they may well have been different shades!
