Ipomoea pes-caprae, commonly known as Morning Glory, Goat's Foot, or Railroad Vine, is a robust and fast-growing ground cover often found along coastal areas. It’s prized for its resilience and attractive foliage and flowers. Morning Glory has thick, waxy, and somewhat succulent leaves shaped like goat's feet, hence one of its common names. The leaves are usually dark green and can be 2-4 inches long, helping the plant withstand salty and sandy conditions.

The plant produces large, funnel-shaped flowers that are typically pink to purple with a darker throat. The flowers open in the morning and may close by the afternoon, especially on hot days. They are attractive to bees and other pollinators.

This plant creates a lush, green carpet adorned with beautiful, vibrant flowers. Its sprawling nature makes it ideal for stabilizing sandy soils and preventing erosion in coastal areas.

  • Light: Ipomoea pes-caprae thrives in full sun. It needs at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily to bloom profusely and maintain healthy growth.

  • Watering: Beach Morning Glory is drought-tolerant once established but prefers regular watering to keep the soil slightly moist, especially during prolonged dry periods. Ensure the soil drains well to prevent root rot.

  • Soil: It grows best in sandy, well-draining soils typical of coastal areas. However, it can tolerate a range of soil types, including poor soils, as long as there is good drainage. It is highly salt-tolerant, making it ideal for beachfront plantings.

  • Fertilization: Fertilization is generally not necessary for this plant. However, if the soil is very poor, you can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to encourage growth.

  • Pruning: Pruning is not usually required, but you can trim back any overgrown or wayward stems to control the plant’s spread and maintain a tidy appearance. Pruning can also help encourage denser growth.
