September is my very favorite month of all for the Flowering Gazebo because of the total transformation which begins with the growth of the Morning Glories. When I first dreamed of this gazebo in my head, I imagined a shelter totally smothered under the growth of the foliage above. Very dependant upon the heat, rain and cold of nights, September begins this transformation.
You will see some years where by mid-month the MORNING GLORIES are in full flower, creating such an amazing display. Some years, because it's either been drier or the evenings are cooler, the foliage is really starting to grow but the flowers are not as many as they are very sensitive to the temperatures. Morning Glories open very early in the morning and close in the afternoon with the heat from the sun; if it's a cloudy overcast day they may last into late afternoon.
