I received some seeds called Orange Morning Glory or Noah Morning Glory. I would like more information and the scientific name. Here is a picture. http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=535509&uid=405962&members=1
Hope someone can help me and thanks.

talinum, grow it in a pot, but try not to let it go to seed. (easier said than done)
it's pretty, grown up around a pole in a pot, but I had one that is still sprouting seeds after 5 years from moving it. I pull them all summer. My DH loves it, but now we've learned it's habits we know what to do with it!

I believe the latin name is ipomoea coccinea var. hederacea. ~ A cross of I.coccinea (which has small red flowers & heart shaped leaves) x I.hederacea (the ivy-leafed morning glory).

Thanks for your help! I will have to be careful with it. Do you think the seeds will winter over in zone 5? I looked up Ipomoea hederacea in my Weeds of Nebraska book and there it was. Could be worse, it could be bindweed.

Well, I have this and I started looking it up last year and I found a website about it and can't remember where it was, but it is also called Scarlett Creeper Morning Glory. It does look alot like a cardinal climber or a cypress vine other than the leaves. I really like mine. I let it grow up my gutter and so it stayed there and I have it growing on a bank. I like it. And it is really pretty with it's yellow center. It is very hardy and you do need to be careful about where u plant it. I let mine seed off so that I could cover my Georgia red clay bank. It will help keep down erosion.

Thanks, Traci S

The hummingbirds just love this one, and for me at least it's not as bad a spreader as some. AND it bloomed well for me without a lot of sun!

I've seen your morning glory, but couldn't add anything to the informative answers you've already been given. :-) BUT I thought your gourd looked like a cross between a dipper gourd and a caveman's club. If you got the seeds from someone else or saved them from last year there's really no telling with absolute certainty ~ gourds cross so easily, are looser than barflies! LOL!
