mug shot #1 morning glory
The wonderful morning glory Ipomoea climbs up the arch. She likes a sunny spot and will go to any lengths --twining her way round any twig or branch, bringing forth bicolor blooms of pale violet and indigo that unfurl in the morning and close up at night. A close relation is the moonflower, which is white and does a Marilyn Monroe with her petals. She has heart shaped leaves, people say she's invasive but as you can see I have her well trained and pot bound, so she's not going anywhere unless I say so. You can grow these from seed, which I got from Kings. When flowered they will produce more seed so cut the dead pods off and they will grow again.
By the way I think that's Martha in the background.
