Morning glory is an appropriate name for this beautiful Central American climber. The buds of 'Heavenly Blue', the most popular variety, are long and tightly furled, but as the morning sunshine reaches them, they can be watched steadily unfolding themselves into 8-13cm (3-5in) wide sky-blue trumpets with clear white and yellow throats. Each flower lasts only a day, but others follow in quick succession. Plants need consistent moisture, with plenty of compost added before planting, a mulch afterwards, and regular watering in dry weather.
