What’s the Story, Morning Glory?

Hmmm…the Morning Glory seedling I brought home looked nice and healthy. I planted it in good soil with some added compost and it got plenty of rain these past two weeks. The site has good drainage and a fence to climb. The other things planted in that same area – Thunbergia (Black-Eyed Susan vine), Cupani Sweet Peas, and Vinca – are all doing quite well.

What’s the story, Morning Glory? Not happy? Being eaten? What can I do to save you?

Here’s the sorry state of this sad little plant, which now has holes in the leaves and looks a bit tattered and torn:

I hope it makes it. We’re really hoping to have some climbing color on that fence this summer!
