The Morning Glory is a plant briefly seen in the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise.
Most Morning glories are vines, meaning they climb trees or man made walls for support. They have small round flowers, which are commonly dark blue, purple, pink or white. Before opening, the flower blooms are usually curling. Although most morning glories open throughout the day, some of them are night-blooming.
In the franchise, Morning glory vines are used for the sulfur in their juice, specifically for making elastic or bouncy products. Rubber has been produced using morning glory juice for at least three thousand years in South America.
In real life, Morning glories are planted near buildings, so that when they climb the walls, they can create summer shades, and also keep the building cooler. Some Asian cultures eat one particular morning glory species - Ipomoea aquatica - also called "Water Spinach". Though the sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) is actually in the morning glory Genus, it is generally not called or considered a morning glory is everyday language.

During the quest "Back in the Saddle, Part 2", Phlegma suggests using juice from a Morning glory vine to make an elastic material for saddles. The player then collects the flowers and delivers them to Heather, who uses the sulfur extracted from the juice.
