The Japanese Morning Glory is a beautiful ornamental plant that has escaped cultivation and become naturalized in subtropical and tropical regions. This annual vine produces beautiful flowers in various shades of blue, pink and rose with blended white stripes or edges. I received seeds for this plant from an online gardening friend and I grow it as a container plant. It blooms off and on all spring and summer.
