15+ Seeds. The Alamo Vine is a perennial (zones 8 and warmer) Morning Glory with palmate (split) leaves and intriguing, large seed pods which give the illusion of a wooden flower after the medium-sized, purplish-throated white blooms fade. Like most morning glories, the blooms fade as the day wears on, but the leaves and seed pods provide interest even after the flowers fade.
