Calystegia purpurata, or Purplish Morning Glory, is a perennial vine well enough behaved to use on a trellis next to your house. Flowers are large and cheerful, foliage looks like glossy salad greens. This morning glory grows within a strip a few miles inland to maybe 40 miles of the ocean or the San Francisco Bay from Matilija Canyon (east of Carpinteria) to maybe Humboldt County, California.
