Heavenly Blue Morning Glory Vine Care and Flowering Tips- 
The most fastest growing vine,  morning glory gets its name from its habit of flowering early as the day begins and as the afternoon approaches in the hot sun the flowers wither off. The vine boasts of many blooms and thus the show goes on. 
Morning glory flowers vines are available in so many beautiful colors that it is too difficult to resit temptation of planting one but this sure is one invasive plant which will soon takeover every place and even cover up other potted plants very fast. From white to blue, purple, pinks, shaded flowers the most seen vine is of blue flowers.
The morning glory vine grows very fast and if left unattended will take over your balconies, terraces and gardens. It is advisable to guide the morning glory vine with some support, fence or trellises and see the vibrant blue show. 
Trimming the green foliage will promote healthy and more blooms on the vine. As other wise more energy will go in maintaining the green leaves. Sunlight is essential for flowering.
One problem with the morning glory vine is it attracts white flies and aphids when over watered or the soil kept too moist. It also attracts ants as they love this vine. So take care while sitting under this one, also take care with small children and pets as the flowers are poisonous.
For encouraging blooming allow the soil to dry well before watering. Trim the dried stems and cut off extra growth for a good growth in containers.
Seeds fall off and the plant spreads by this system. On land it grows very fast and sometimes becomes difficult to control. Gardeners have to dig off the soil and remove the roots to stop the growth. But new plants soon come out from the roots underground.
The most beautiful flowering vine morning glory can cover fences,   and whole walls if given guided support and give a beautiful fantastic show of bell shaped flowers.

The most sturdy among canna flowering plants are the red after which come yellow, the other color flowering canna plants i have found to be slow in flowering and the wait is too long sometimes. Our peach colored canna plant has after a year not given any blooms, every time the leaves grow and then dry off .hoping to see some blooms soon!
