Beach Morning Glory

Beach Morning Glory most often grows along the base of the dunes and sends long runners through the sand toward the shore. I've read that these runners can grow to a length of 75 feet! This one is pretty long, but I didn't measure it.

Some people call this plant Railroad Vine and I can see how that name is appropriate. The "tracks" it puts down grow quickly and help to stabilize the dune structure.  

The pretty pinkish-purple flowers open early and close about midday. They don't last long, but they sure do make me smile!


  1. The perspective in the first photo is excellent. These cheerful flowers would brighten my day, too.

  2. Beautiful pictures...beautiful scenery!

    1. Looks like you have some nasty weather coming your way....take care and let us know how you are doing.

    2. All is well--lots of rain, steady and persistent showers, but no heavy downpours, so everything is draining well--no flooding.

  3. Glad to hear that your are OK and there is no flooding. Surely you must be getting tired of the rainy weather.....
