morning glories

For a long time I had no luck trying to grow morning glories, but they seem to like the soil in my new back yard. For the second year in a row they've gone bonkers climbing up a trellis I leaned against the fence. They were so aggressive this year I had to clip them out of my neighbor's tree after they crept over to a branch that was hanging too close.  I had hoped to get several shades of blue from a "tri-mix" seed packet as well as some white moonflowers, but only this particular color showed up. I think it's the type called "Grandpa Ott." During the heat of the day the leaves wilt badly and they look pathetic, but the next morning they come out to greet the day. All they need is a bit of water to keep on going.
