Morning Glory, Heavenly Blue (Ipomoea tricolor) seeds

$2.95$20.10

Family:  Morning Glory (Convulvaceae)

Annual vine, 60 days to flowers.

Breeders will try to make a more attractive Morning Glory, but in my opinion they are doomed to failure.  “Heavenly Blue” is tops (my Mom says so).   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.  May all your blues be this color.

    I live in zone 11 with an average low of 45F, will my morning glory vines lose their flowers and leaves in the winter?

      Heavenly blues are short-lived annuals, they won’t perennialize in subtropics. I would suggest going for the ololiuqui (Rivea), which is woody and would be perennial for you. r

      would the ololiuqui (Rivea) lose her leaves in winter? Im looking for a vine green roof solution that allows for sun in the winter…(non fruiting as its above my canvas home)

      the ololiuqui would be evergreen for you, I think.
