Morning Glory, Cotton Candy

Short Description

A great morning glory for small gardens.

Full Description

We are smitten with the sheer, delicate beauty of this unique introduction. Cotton Candy lives up to its name, conjuring a floriferous confection of innumerable large ruffled double blooms of spun-sugar bright pink. The radiant blooms cloak vines that like to amble up trellises, reaching 6 ft. A good choice for smaller gardens where more vigorous morning glories can be overwhelming.

Sowing Directly in the Garden:

  • Morning glory seed has a hard seed coat. To aid germination, nick or cut the seed coat with a nail file and soak the seed overnight.
  • Direct sow seeds in average soil in full sun two weeks after danger of frost has passed. Morning glory is a vigorous vine; choose a location next to a support for the vines to climb.
  • Morning glory is not generally recommended for containers.
  • Prepare the soil by removing weeds and working organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth. Morning glory tends to prefer poor soils rather than highly enriched soil.
  • Sow seeds thinly and cover with 1/2 inch of soil.
  • Firm soil lightly and keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in 7-21 days.
  • Keep soil evenly moist but not wet.
  • Thin plants to stand 10 inches apart when plants are 1 to 2 inches high.
  • Do not fertilize unless the plants are showing a nutrient deficiently. Over fertilizing may produce lush green vines with few flowers.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Remove plants after they are killed by heavy frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
  • Morning Glory vines need little care and are easy to grow.
  • Plants can self-sow so allow some to set seeds at the end of the season if you would like it to come back next year. If you would like to prevent self-sowing, remove seed pods before the seeds are released.

Morning Glory, Cotton Candy is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Few But Beautiful Mine didn't produce very many flowers, but the ones that did -- were beautiful! I have a balcony on the seventh floor, so I wanted something noticeable from a distance. I have grown morning glories over the years that did quite well, which drew much comment from passers-by. Admittedly, though, for the cotton candy variety, I hadn't read up on proper soil requirements of morning glories -- which is opposite the amount of plant food that makes my other flowers flourish and draw compliments. I WILL try these for one more summer, offering less rich soil and keeping them somewhat drier than the other types. I would definitely recommend cotton candy to others.
