Flower Fest - M for Morning Glory

bud and flower growing in the woods of South Carolina

Morning Glory flowers, bloom in the morning, allow pollinating insects to enjoy them and by afternoon call it a day! If wildflowers had jobs to do, this one would be an easy one I think.

Morning Glory is a fast growing trailing plant with heart shaped leaves and trumpet shaped flowers. They are native to tropical America and belong to the genus Ipomoea. They are popular in gardens and are grown to cover fences and compound walls. The twining vines can be troublesome if left unchecked, but the flowers are always a delight when in bloom.
