I thought I would share photos of the vine flowers with the MAG. Do you grow morning glories, too?

I've tried for several years. The chipmunk and squirrel make quick work of them. Even when I start them in pots, the squirrel dig them up. Sighing!

Those are gorgeous!
I haven't planted any cultivated morning glories, bit I have a stripey blue-purple (wild) one, it looks like pictures called Grandpa Ott's. I haven't noticed it in bloom yet.

OOOhh, love the photos of your pretties! I know Bluespiral was doing a lot of growing and crossing for a while... This is the first year for a while that I didn't get some of her generously shared seeds started. I love the "special" japanese MG's, and that double bloom you posted -- wow!

..Had to look this up....
In Aug.,2007 I grew the Grandpa Ott MG in the corner by my Sweet Surrender Rose.
It grew up to the second story windows. VERY aggressive!

To this day--almost 10 years old seeds from it continue sprouting every year.
I pull them all out--as, otherwise, the vine would grow into my big Azalea bush
or travel around my poor Multi-Blue Clematis, which is, by now, almost dead.
I think MG seeds last forever..... Glare

It sounds quite pretty. I wonder if it is Ipomoea hederacea. Try searching for inages and see if it matches your blue purple one.

Bluespiral has some real gems. Stay tuned for more flower photos in August.

Very pretty. Ipomoea purpurea will drop a ton of seeds and will be ever present if seeds are not gathered.

Yes, once you let I. purpurea go to seed, you have it around forever! The japanese MGs by comparison... seems like they have to be started early in order to harvest mature seeds by frost. I put them in hanging baskets one year, and that was wonderful. They climbed around the framework of my canopy on the back deck, and I brought them inside when it got cold so they could keep growing until their seed pods matured.

Looking forward to more photos, please, Gerris!

I did a double take at this one. It's very attractive and wondering if you would describe it as a double?

Yes it is a double flower form of Calystegia pubescens. All reproductive structures are petals making it sterile. I love its soft pink color.

Thanks, Robin!

I am amazed how many blooms open each day on the large Ipomoea platensis plant!

Funny, I get only one bloom a day. Plant is on the deck, eastern exposure. Think it needs more sun?
