Morning Glory, Flying Saucers (Ipomoea tricolor), packet of 50 seeds
Family: Morning Glory (Convulvaceae)
Annual, 60 days to flowers
Vigorous climbing vine bearing white, flaring blossoms with radiating blue venation. In spring, nick the seed and soak overnight, then sow on the east side. Sow the pre-soaked seed directly in the dirt in a place up against a building or trellis that receives morning light and shade in the afternoon. Morning glories appreciate bone meal or bat guano in the planting medium, but not nitrogen, which only encourages rampant leaf growth, not flowering. After the seedlings pop up (they look like hands held in prayer) then make sure you have a trellis available for them to climb on, and prepare yourself for ecstatic color come midsummer, all the way through to frost.
