Purple On The Teepee

The heat and drought kept the gourds from taking off until recently.  So, they haven't covered the teepee trellises like I had hoped, but the morning glories are making up for lost time.


In the background of the first photo, you can also see several blooms on the moon flower plant.  It has gotten huge!



These morning glories reseed themselves.  I have to pull a lot of they'd take over everything.

  1. We had moon flower vines at the last house/garden. It was amusing to watch them open each evening. As I remember, they had a good fragrance too.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  2. I like those teepee trellises. I've been trying to get the hubby to build me something similar, but so far, it's not working.
    Love the morning glories.....

  3. I like the trellis a lot, and I also love the morning glory/moon trflower combo. I know sometimes morning glories are called invasives, but I could never consider them a weed, they remind me of my Grandmother, so I have some in my yard too :)

  4. The morning glories do look as if they are trying to take over the teepee. I know it takes a lot of work to keep them under control, but they sure are pretty.

  6. I have the perfect spot for morning glories. Seeing how gorgeous yours are, I definitely need to get a vine or two planted there next spring!

  8. The purple morning glory looks like "Grandpa Ott" that I grew last year. I've never had seedlings become invasive but Tennessee summers can be hard on seedlings.

  9. That is so lovely! I remember morning glories in my NE garden going nuts all over the place. Here they freeze too early so they don't even get the chance to re-seed. :(

  10. That is a fantastic colored morning glory. I didn't know they would reseed!
    This is the first year I've been able to get them to grow in my PNW garden, reseeding would be welcome I think.

    The trellis is fantastic!

  11. Pretty Morning Glories! I just planted one for the first time this summer and it also has just taken off recently. I love how the flowers glow in pictures.

  12. I have moonflowers finally flowering -- just in time for frost!!! I'm going to rethink all the vines next year -- so many of the annuals take so long to bloom here in Western NY.
