Morning Glory Flowering
I have planted morning glories two years in a row. I end up
with huge vines but no flowers. They are planted in direct signlight and
moderately fertile soil. My current vines are reaching 15 feet around a
flag pole but not one flower! Yet, there are wild morning glories on
fence near the cultivated plants. Rain this year has been moderate and
last years it was a bit more rainy but the soil is well-drained. What am
I doing wrong?
Some morning glories are late bloomers. The typical blue variety doesn't
bloom until later in summer. You may just need to be patient.
There is a discussion of such at
