Full Answer

Morning glories are grown as annuals, but some varieties are perennial in frost-free regions. They grow best in full sun with well-drained soil. Morning glories bloom on a vine that can be trained to cover trellises, pergolas and fences. The vine grows quickly, reaching 10 feet or more just two months after the seed has sprouted.
