Ipomoea - Morning Glories

Renown for the beauty of the flowers and lush foliage, Ipomaoea (Morning Glories) is a rich genus of about 500 mostly warm-climate annuals, perennials, evergreen shrubs, and trees. Most of the annuals and perennials are trailing or twining climbers which are perfect to hide an unforgiving fence, climb a wall or scramble through arbors and trellises. Blooming continuously over an extremely long season, Morning Glories are prized for their quick growing climbing habits and attract butterflies and hummingbirds in the garden.
