Stazia, you may grow the annual morning glories. This perennial one does not set seeds but grows well from cuttings.


chrysalynea, your starflower is beautiful

stazia, your welcome!

Funny about none of them having a scent....even the bluish colored roses are sooo light on fragrance.

I always had blue periwinkles in Florida! Does that count???!!!! (no scent on those either)

I'm not blue anymore. My favorite plant just sent up a spike. I've been told it's a matchstick bromeliad.

Morning Glory 'Giant Flying Saucer', annual, I am not too happy with this one, it is not a strong grower, I have a flower here and there... maybe it would like a cooler zone...
