I say put them on, Dennis. 

Last weekend when I was traveling in western Virginia and spotting Lycoris
squamigera here and there, I saw lots of Ipomoea pandurata blooming in
fields everywhere. Those big white flowers with their purple centers are
really eye-catching. 

I've always wondered why this plant is not better known in gardens.

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where I've found it hard to
collect good seed of Ipomoea pandurata because the seeds are often eaten by
some insect.
