Are you an early riser? If so, you may just catch a glimpse of these glorious white flowers opening! The Pearly Gates Morning Glory (Ipomoea tricolor) produces scores of trumpet-shaped blossoms, each two to four inches in diameter. Twisted into a spiral when closed, the flowers unravel before dawn into large stunning pearly white blooms, ready for the first pollinators of the morning. But don't worry if you don't get out at dawn - the flowers last well on the vine so you'll enjoy them all day.
This heirloom vine has been used for decades, to cover old fences with its attractive, spade shaped leaves and cheery flowers. It is also used on porches and balconies, covering railings, posts and pillars as well. Although Grandpa Ott Morning Glory is sought after by many gardeners across the world, you might be surprised to learn that in some states, it is considered an invasive species. You should consider checking into which varieties of Morning Glory plants are allowed in your state, if any at all. The plants themselves do not require much maintenance and grow vigorously when left unattended for weeks at a time.
Black Kniolas produces a deep violet, almost black flower that will bloom to about 1.5 to 2 inches in width.
