Morning Glory In Shade

Jebelle012 added on March 25, 2020 | Answered

Is it possible to grow japanese morning glories in a shady place? The only place available for gardening is the balcony which is blocked by buildings on the east and western side. The place gets around 2 - 3 hours of intense midday sun. I really wanna grow these plants as the seeds were given to me a long time ago and i dont want to store them for too long. Thank you!

They will grow, no doubt. They are quite invasive. They will not flower, near as well, in a shady place, though. Still, you may get seeds even with environmental conditions working against you.

If all else fails, you can grow one in a container, indoors, with the help of grow lights! This will ensure flowers and seeds for future plants.
