8 Flowering Vines to Plant for Nonstop Summer Blooms (11 photos)

Tall morning glory is considered invasive in Florida, Georgia and Kentucky, as well as parts of Virginia and other warm states. If you live in one of these areas, pick another vine to plant.

If you live outside of these regions but are worried about the vines popping up all over your garden, choose a species that will be less likely to reseed in your area. For example, I. tricolor forms flowers late in the season. In northern regions, the weather is too cold and wet for the seeds to germinate when they ripen in the fall. There are also morning glory varieties that are sterile, meaning they won’t produce another plant.

Caution: All parts of the vine are poisonous if ingested.

Origin: Native to Mexico and South America
