HEAVENLY BLUE MORNING GLORY (Ipomoea rubrocoerulea) is my all-time favorite morning glory and one I remember from childhood growing along a white picket fence in our neighborhood. The huge (2"to 6", but averaging 4") blooms are especially heavenly when the morning sun hits that saucer-shaped true blue disc with pale creamy yellow center and throat. Although they are an annual, they will reseed themselves in the proper climate. Blooms in late summer to fall when their somewhat scraggly start bursts forth with radiant color much appreciated among the golds and reds of autumn. After all these years of growing, I still catch my breath when they are in full display. These are true "morning" glories, opening very early closing before the heat of the morning takes over. If you are an early riser (as am I) these are a fabulous way to greet the day! Annual. 50 seeds. Please note: ARIZONA LAW PROHIBITS OUR SHIPPING TO THAT STATE.
GROWING TIPS: After danger of last frost, scarify or soak the seeds prior to planting, but beyond that, don't fuss! In fact, the less you do the happier these seem to be. When I coddle them they won't grow for me but if I just stomp them in the ground they joyously burst forth! Plants grow 8-10' or more if given support and will cover a trellis or arbor handily. Don't fertilize this one - but they do prefer a neutral to sweet soil, so if horticultural lime is necessary, by all means. Did you know that morning glories are fairly accurate predictors of weather? They are wide open when the weather is fair and when they shut rain and foul weather are on the way
