Morning Glories: Climbers v. Mounders

Hey everyone- Here's the latest in my MG dilemma.
I have a 6" pot on my windowsill. One plant each of Red Picotee and Blue Picotee in the pot.
Issue: Red Picotee- Commercial seed...climbing like mad (planted mid March). Blue "Picotee" was from a trade, and is NOT climbing at all. I'm wondering if the reason is because it was possibly mis-labelled, and is really an Ensign instead?
Can you TELL if a MG is a climber or a mounder by growth habit this early in the game?
Both were planted same time. Red is easy 2-feet, while the blue is maybe 4 inches and looking more bushy (8 leaves in this 4-inch space)

Is there such a thing as non-vining MG's??


RE: Morning Glories: Climbers v. Mounders

Yes; Bush-type...Burpee sells these that are called "Enchantment", and Valueseeds has identical ones that are called 'Flash' or 'Ensign'

Enchantment MG

T&M's Ensign Series

T&M's Light Blue "Flash"
