Morning Glory 'Flying Saucers'

Genus: Ipomoea.

Species: Ipomoea purpurea.

I must admit, we are just too cold for good morning glories, or the sun is just not enough. I've had them vine in a hot sunny location and never flower and I've had little growth but then flowers. I keep trying since it wouldn't survive winter and the usual problem is their invasive self seeding in most environments. I have a selection of ipomoea to grow this year, but this variety has been successful only in the house under light. I'm going to try protected on the porch, see what happens.
