Do Morning Glory Blooms Open Multiple Times?

How many times does a morning glory flower bloom? I have one that has just one flower on it, and it opened just once. The next afternoon it fell off. Then I had one open yesterday morning, and now today it's not open. Am I doing something wrong, or does each flower only open once?

I don't know the answer to your question, but my late aunt had a beautiful morning glory vine in her yard, that was on a trellis. In the summer the whole vine was covered with flowers and it wasn't even in any real sunlight. It might have got a little early morning sunlight, but I know it never got much because they had a lot of big trees in their yard.

Morning glories bloom only once, in the morning then they close up and fall off. Fortunately, you should get quite a few blooms each day.


I average 10-20 daily. Where the bud falls off, you will see a seed pod in a few days. Save the seeds for next years planting.

Ok thanks for your reply. I was starting to think that they must only bloom once since it was happening every day. Thank you!

Morning Glory
Morning face opened,
Followed the sun.
Closed-up forever
As day was done.
One day to blossom,
One day to shine.
What if only this


One day were mine?
Today may be all
The days I have left.
Maybe this moment
Is my final breath.
The mornings been spent,
Noondays long gone.
Over my shoulder,
Shadows grow long.
As time slips away
One thing I know,
God still has a plan,
I can still grow.
Rising each morning,
Face to the Son,
Bloom where Im planted,
Til my work is done.
