Heavenly Blue Morning Glory

By | September 27, 2021

I think this Morning Glory flower is called Heavenly Blue, and I see lots of them at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. These flowers are growing on the edge of the corn and soybean fields. The flowers open in the morning and fade in the afternoon.

I read that the Morning Glory produces new flowers daily and blooms continuously from early summer to early fall.
