Love and Mortality

That is the meaning of the beautiful morning glory flower. Native to South America, this flower belongs to the convolvulaceae which includes over a thousand different flowers. It is a hardy vine which if left unchecked can grow as high as 10 feet.

Morning glories live up to their name in that they bloom early in the morning. They represent the month of September and they can have many meanings in various different cultures.

In Aztec mythology, morning glories were one of the five symbols of xochipilli, the flower prince who is often seen in sculptures adorned in the flower along with other types of flowers. He is the god of pleasurable activities such as feasting, parties, love, music, dance, and song.
