Keep telling myself to buy gloriosa bulbs and plant them everywhere in the garden. It is one of my all time favorites. Great pics!

Those are some very pretty flowers you have! I wish I could the morning glory here. I'm afraid to plant them because there is a white one that will take over the whole neighborhood.
Do you know the variety of yours? Maybe it's a different type, it's just beautiful.

Petra~ I do love the year round gardening we get here in Florida but sometimes miss the spring blossoms found in colder climates.

Compost~ I love the gloriosa lily too! It seems to love our hot climate.
Catherine~ My morning glory bush is called "Ipomea carnea" and it's not anywhere near as invasive as the regular vine variety. I'll send you some cuttings to start if you'd like.

Very beautiful! That looks like a Painted Lady Hibiscus you have there.

I highly recommend the ipomea carnea plant! It has been a year round stunning bloomer for me in my zone 10 garden.
For those of you that are interested in learning more about the perennial morning glory bush this site has all of the plant characteristics:

Lovely, lovely blooms! I'm growing Mexican petunia for the first time. Must make a list of all the blooms that I've never grown-- like the gloriosa lilies. I'm fascinated by morning glories and Ipomoea carnea is gorgeous!! So's the orchid!

Karrita -

Nice meeting you at the Mounts Plant Sale a few weeks ago. I love the soap dish and spoon holder I bought from you.

I missed this post somehow????? Gloriosa lilies are one of my fave! They are wonderful. I got mine from my grandmother. I just planted a morning glory tree from my mom. Ever heard of it? It is doing well. I can't wait to see it in action.
