I may have the time now to post some pictures and maybe save the seeds, Amen.


Maybe it will not take 6 years with the help from everyone here when I post the pictures.

Default Ensign Blue bush morning glories

I picked up this seed packet yesterday. I saw on the packet that this was a mounding morning glory which grew only 6 in tall and 12 to 18 in wide. However, doing some internet searches I found that bush morning glories can grow 4 to 5 ft wide and have a very large taproot. Some sites say that bush morning glories are annuals while others say they are perennials.

I'm not going to be planting these this summer, maybe next year. Has anyone had experience with bush morning glories?

Thank you so Very much. I need this area to plant extra Dr. Carolyn plants as I had let these plant return until I Identified These strange Plants.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytolacca_americana

From what I have read the Contraband Slaves must have used this plant for Medicine but is "Toxicity and Poisoning. So I will leave two plants for historical reasons along with the PawPaw tree that was almost destroyed by a Hurricane in 2016.

I will try not to destroy the Morning Glories growing around them.

Thank you so much. I will work hard to get all my Dr. Caroline Tomatoes Plants out of their growing pots today in the very hot sun, Amen!! Amen!!!!

We always called it "poke salad". We ate it like turnip greens...had to blanch and drain it first, though...my Dad would eat the berries...said it did wonders for the arthritis in his hands and knees....

That's funny I've heard of poke salad but never knew anybody who actually ate it. Do you go for young plants, or how does that work?

Default Unknown morning glory

This is from a hanging basket I trained to grow up into a tree. I have no idea what the name of this one is because I planted it from a packet of mixed variety seeds.

Default Morning glories in hanging basket

If you don't have room for the plants in the ground and you fear that the plants will become invasive if you plant them in your garden area, go up up up. This is a hanging basket and the vines grew up the chains of the basket and are growing nicely in the lower branches of the tree.

I will do baskets next year, turns out the deer thought they were a delicacy and nibbled them down all summer so they never got a chance to put up vines, let alone flowers out in the freestanding flower bed. My own fault, I never got the deer netting put up around it, that garden is so weedy it really needs to be dug up to start over.
