(Ipomoea nil)
Scarlett O’Hara unfurls her true glory from midsummer until frost in daily displays of brilliant, scarlet trumpets with dainty white throats that offer welcome nectar to visiting hummingbirds. The rich green leaves make a lovely backdrop for the radiant color of the 4 inch fluted blooms. Enjoy the charm of these old-fashioned bright beauties twining up a trellis or arbor.

ANNUAL VINE

Summer/fall bloom

Frost tender

 

TO START OUTDOORS

In late spring, once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°, plant seeds in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 2 to 3 inches apart and 1/2 inch deep. Firm soil over seeds.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

 Sow indoors 4 or 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2 inch deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant very carefully once nights stay above 50° and before seedlings get too crowded. Thin or transplant seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart; avoid disturbing roots as much as possible.

 

GROWING NOTES

Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall at planting time; strong netting or a sturdy trellis serve well to hold these vigorous climbers. Morning glories will bloom hard in midsummer once days begin to shorten. Combine with climbing Moonlight nasturtiums or Purple Hyacinth beans for a striking show of iridescent beauty.
