This Ipomoea Tricolor has heart-shaped leaves and it makes a wonderful climbing vine. Morning glory uses are unlimited as they can climb almost any structure or even evergreen shrubs and trees. Growing these vining plants from seed is easy.
Because the seeds have a hard coat, nicking the seed coat with a knife tip or rubbing the seeds with a piece of sandpaper will improve germination. After nicking the flower seeds, place them in a bowl and soak them overnight in warm water.
