Grow “Black Kniolas” Morning Glory from fresh flowering vine seeds. “Black Kniolas” produces a deep violet, almost black flower that will bloom to about 1.5 to 2 inches in width. Greatly used to cover a fence or trellis, and exceptionally gorgeous when sown near a white background / fence. For an eye popping contrast Kniolas Black Ipomoea can be sown with or near white Ipomoea plants such as the Moonflower, Shiva, or Milky Way varieties.


Ipomoea purpurea will grow to a mature length of about 6 to 8 feet long. Morning Glory is an annual plant that will bloom profusely up until the first killing frost. It may return the following year if seeds fall to the ground below it.


Growing the Morning Glory vine is simple. Because it has a hard outer shell, nicking the seeds with a knife, or scratching them with sandpaper is recommended. After nicking the seeds, simply place them in warm water overnight to soften the hard outer shell. They can be sown the next day.


Morning Glories can be started indoors, in peat pots for easy transplanting later on. They can also be started directly in the area of your choice when the weather becomes warm. Temperatures should be at least 65F for the seedlings to thrive. Sow the seeds about 1/4” under topsoil. Provide at least 6 hours of sunlight each day, and a fair amount of moisture. Small sprouts should begin poking through the earth in roughly 10 to 20 days, sometimes even sooner.

You will notice that Morning Glory seeds consist of a hard outer shell. Before sowing these seeds, they should be prepped by scarification or soaking. Sometimes you can even consider both methods. Nick the seeds with sandpaper or a knife and soak in warm water, for 24 hours. If starting indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Place the seeds at a depth of 1/2" under topsoil. Transplant, or direct sow into the garden when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed.

Morning Glory plants will thrive in the heat of summer and prefer an area of full sunlight. Temperatures should be at least 70F or higher. The soil should be average to sandy, but also well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily until germination has occurred, watering less frequently as time goes on.

Morning Glory seeds typically germinate within roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants are known to grow and establish with the support of a fence or trellis. Each vine can grow to a mature length of 7 to 13 feet long, displaying large, trumpet shaped flowers all summer long. Each plant can be spaced about 18 to 24 inches apart, depending on the thickness of coverage you desire. Morning Glories are known to attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees & hummingbirds as well.
