Plant of the Day
Monday 10 July 2017

The annual climber Ipomoea purpurea ‘Grandpa Ott’ (morning glory) is suitable for growing up walls, trellis work or for scrambling through other plants. This sunny wall with a well drained soil at Myddleton House, Enfield, UK, is ideal for this seed raised annual plant to put on a mid to late summer show, the watering cans are optional!
