The Blue Daze morning glory is a beautiful flower. I have had it growing on my property for over 30 years and it likes to spread if not attended to properly. I was unaware of some of the companion plants to pair it with. I have cone flowers growing in large clusters, this would be an ideal plant to give a greater panorama of color to my flower beds.
It is so good to know you are growing this plant in your garden. These plants are truly amazing, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. Wishing you all the best.
