Hello,

Too much nitrogen will make morning glories put out much leaves and little flowers. They prefer poor soil. Very hot night temperatures can also cause some annuals not to bloom.

Carol Q,
Thank you.
I have my morning glory next to the hydrangea, which has some nitrogen in the soil to make the blossoms purple. The soil pH is 5.9. I hope to balance the pH to the soil next spring.
