Convolvulaceae or more commonly known as Morning Glory, is a flowering plant that unravels it's blooms in the 'morning'. Most are perennials but there are some annual plants. Both types of seeds are easily found at most garden centers or nurseries. This plant was used in China for medicinal purposes and later became popular in Japan for it's loveliness. I like to plant this as a vine along a house, fence or trellis. It's easily pulled out at the end of the growing season or cut back. In the language of flowers the morning glory represents 'love in vain'. Thanks for stopping by gardenrooms, and thanks Jane for your fun feature Flowers in the house!
