Gardeners' Notes:

Compact mounding Morning Glories. I planted several seeds in a container. All sprouted and grew easily for me. I have them growing in partial shade. (Morning shade, afternoon sun.) Each plant blooms at least one or two blooms each day for me. I do fertilize them with Bloom Booster to encourage blooming. I am doing hand pollinating of the blooms. They are producing lots of pollen, so I hope to get seeds from these! These are great for pots or hanging baskets since they are mounding morning glories instead of vining. Very attractive and colorful!
