Common morning-glory

    The Common morning-glory (Ipomoea purpurea) is a twining annual with dark purple flowers that fade to almost pale violet after opening. After soaking it, sow seeds in individual pots during early spring.

    Plant out in summer in rich soil and give plants a very warm wall to climb on, or encourage them to clamber through wall-shrubs. Less common than the blue morning glory, it is a very worthwhile climbing annual and a perfect flowering foil to bronze- or purple-tinted foliage.
