Planting by Zones

Zones 9-10

  • Morning glory vines are best planted in early spring in Zones 9 and 10. Plants will perennialize in mild areas without frost.

Zones 2-8

  • Grown as annual. Plant in late spring or early summer at least 2 weeks after the threat of frost has passed.

Planting Morning Glory Seeds

  • Direct sow outdoors in full sun. Soil temperature should be at least 65°F. 
  • To direct sow, plant seeds in debris-free, well-worked soil that has been deeply watered. Cover well with 1/2” of finely sifted soil. Scarifying (scratching) the seed coat to allow water in will help the seed take on the water quicker and therefore germinate quicker. Seeds can also be soaked overnight to aid germination.
  • Morning glory vines are not fussy and can be grown in relatively poor, well-draining soil.
  • Space plants 12-18” apart.

Growing Morning Glory

  • These vines grow easily and vigorously. We suggest that you do not plant in an area where they need to be contained. They make wonderful decorative statements on fences, mailboxes, or other standing objects.
  • Mulch heavily around your plants to help with weed suppression and moisture retention. Morning glory is drought-tolerant and requires only moderate moisture.
  • Deadhead spent blooms.
  • Collect seeds for replanting or allow to self-sow. Spent flowers can also be removed before seed pods are formed.

Harvesting Morning Glory

  • Morning glory blooms are best left on the vine for the enjoyment of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Flowers ranging from blue to purple open in the morning and only last one day but vines will continue to bloom all season long.

Growing Morning Glory in Containers

  • Morning glory vines are best grown in the ground but in mild climates can grow so aggressively that they will become a pest. Growing them in pots can help to ensure they stay a manageable size.

Southern California Pro-tips

  • Morning glory vines are fairly drought-tolerant once they are established. Mulch heavily around your plants to ensure the soil does not dry out or heat up too much.
