I thought the sweet potato vines flowers looked a little bit like the lavender moonvine.

Joseph, you know I love the white with pink eye. Its drop dead
gorgeous.

Wilmington, DE(Zone 7a)

Look at this volunteer that popped up out of a mix I collected a few years ago. My jaw dropped when I saw this one!

I think the gray flowered volunteer is a morph of this particular one, without the gene for blue color being expressed.

Lastly, a dazzling electric pink for you pink flower lovers.

Oh my goodness those blooms are drop dead gorgeous, thanks for making my day today.

Joseph, The gray bloom is a beauty, definitely a jaw dropper which is
my favorite type of bloom. lol
The lovely pink is covered in a sprinkling of Star Dust. Wonderful
blooms you're getting this season.

Thanks, Debra and Jackie. I really appreciate the feedback from you.

Thanks, Helena, you have some healthy looking plants there in your garden.

Helena, great blooms. I will be getting blooms one of these days. lol

This JMG was actually closer to red, but photographed pinkish red. It is another one from a mix I grew several years ago, although for the life of me, I do not remember this colored flower being in the container. It appears a bit like Dainagon, which I think I grew that year, too. It is a big flower JMG, and stayed open all day to sunset.

I really liked this blue, another variant from the same mix that gave the red one just shown.

Do MG's flowers last just for one day?

Wilmington, DE(Zone 7a)

Most Japanese morning glories will not even remain open past noon. The red one I just posted stayed open because it was a relatively cool day today. It would most likely have closed earlier if it had been a very hot day today.

Some species, such as Ipomoea obscura, will open up in the afternoon, and then there are the species that open up near sunset.

Lilburn, GA

That is sad...

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

I was able to catch this one at noon when I came home for lunch.

Joseph, love the large pink and its lacy look. So pretty.

Debra, great flaked bloom.

(Becky) in Sebastian, FL(Zone 10a)

Some very nice blooms y'all are posting! Interesting colors on some of them, too! Looks like the season is getting into full swing now! Keep those photos coming! :-)

Wilmington, DE(Zone 7a)

Thanks, Becky. Debra, it is nice to see the flaked flower being expressed as we expect it to look, it is quite nice.

The one in the middle is about to flower. I believe it's tye-die pink, the one I've longed for.

The one on the left. I just mulched them with grass clipping and fertilized them with my homemade banana peel tea with epsom salt added. There are just perking up.

A little bug damage on leaves of this one but the bloom made up for it.

Does anyone know if tie-dye pink is very fussy about making seeds? Just curious.
