This showy climber will dazzle all who are lucky enough to behold it! Morning glory is so named because the flowers open in the cool of morning, then close when it gets too hot. On cloudy days and in the fall, the blossoms stay open all day. Caution: Most parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
