I need morning glories, will seed from 2005 germinate?

The hog fence trellis has sat empty for over a year. Setup as the gate to my side yard, it will be a flower filled welcome sign.

The pandemic has forced me into my closets to look for the plants I want to grow this year. In a shoe box lies seed packets dating back to the summer we bought our house, fifteen years ago. So would seed that has sat in a dark box year in and out have any potential to germinate? We shall see. And if not — I will find more.

Ipomoea nil – an annual that seeds readily, will quickly cover a trellis, blooming in summer.
