Is there any way to keep morning glory plants from freezing?
You can protect them all winter, but if you are expecting a light frost or a short cold snap and want to keep them alive for a few more weeks, these articles will help you:
We normally sow perennial MG in spring for late summer flowering. But someone told me that we can sow it in summer for fall blooming and sow in winter for spring blooming. Is this correct? I thought it did not tolerate winters.

I planted both my morning glory and moonflower from small transplants a few months ago. Both seem to be growing well on support bamboo, big green leaves but no flowers flower buds. I did have a slight problem with aphids but removed them by hand (sprayed with Scotts Ecosense insecticide- they didn't seem to like it but seemed to recover well). Why are they not flowering?
Try adding more phosphorus to the soil like bone meal. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/bone-meal-fertilizer.htm

There is a morning glory that is dark purple and smells like cinnamon. Would anyone know what variety it is?
Grandpa Ott comes to mind but not sure of the fragrance.
Please help. This is my first successful summer growing morning glories. But now that winter has arrived, they've gone dormant. I live in New Mexico and don't know how to prep or do anything for the winter so they'll come back next summer. I've got a neighbor that completely cut his away and I'm assuming he did so in order that they will grow back. Do I need to do the same?
Morning glories are actually annuals, but they are self-seeding annuals. The vines you see now are dying and can be cut back. In the spring, the seeds from those vines will regrow as new vines. Be careful though, sometimes morning glories reseed so well that they can become a nuisance.
My mother had a beautiful flower garden and it's been overrun by morning glory or bindweed. It's been a mess. I was able to save half the flower garden but how do I kill it so they don't grow back and I want to be able to plant this spring?
The elimination of bindweed involves pruning, boiling water or Round-Up - all of these methods are discussed at length in this article:
The methods required to eradicate morning glory include the use of thick mulches or weed barrier fabric to smother seedlings as well as the use of systemic selective herbicides. These methods are discussed in detail here:
How do you get rid of wild morning glory? We live in central western OK in zone 7. Wild morning glory is trying to run rampant through our yard. I pull it up when I run across it. Being a perennial, it is emerging now (early spring) and it is coming up every everywhere!
