I planted my morning glories in the ground right under my porch edge. Then I put a fan shaped trellis for them to climb over. Knowing from experience, they are going to go way over, I placed an old chair there at the top for them to run over. I think it worked great. They were pretty from the ground over the trellis and pretty on the porch as they spilled over.

Don't forget to save the seeds. After the flower blooms there is a brown pod with about 5-6 seeds inside. Be careful when you open them because the will pop out and you will lose them. Great picture and they look really healthy. (09/18/2009)
Yes, they are very beautiful, but here in my state of Australia, they are declared a noxious weed, and it is forbidden to plant them, as they take over everything, and literally smother native plants. So just keep an eye on them and make sure they don't over run any other plants you may want to have around.
