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.

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.

Thanks, Tony. I liked your latest photo, which is referred to as tie-dye, shibori or blizzard, but all may agree that it is beautiful.

What type of camera are you using, Tony? Is there a way to direct the focusing mechanism onto the flower? It appears the autofocus is looking beyond the subject in your photo and focuses on the background.

Helena - Outstanding blooms! I believe that I am "first" in line for seeds of your beautiful Sazanami! (From another website post.) LOL! Your Fuji no Monet is just gorgeous! I am so glad yours turned out to be the true purple blooming vine instead of the pink or white blooming vine gene. :-) :-)

Joseph - Nice pink bloom.

Debra - Won't be long now before you have lots of blooms on your vines, too!

Tony - Did you purchase seeds for Tie-dye Pink? If not, have you ever grown Hanafubuki or Ushio? If so, that might be what your tie-dye looking pink bloom is. Here is a photo of one of my first blooms on my Hanafubuki last year. Of course the blooms changed drastically after the first few and looked more typical of that cultivar. Love your wire cage in your pot.

Here is a very nice first flower of N23, another vine with nicely variegated leaves. From the Noriko Takemura collection.

Thanks Joseph, wow those are beautiful blooms!! You have some awesome vines!

Hard to understand how the same bloom looks with more color. Purple Plum Velvet from "Taste" a little while ago, same bloom.

Whoa! Some real beauties posted above!!!

I love the Sazanami, Helena! The blooms will hopefully mutate like the lavender ones I grew last year and produce some interesting future blooms! I love your blue ones! And I find the Fuji no Monet to be such a gorgeous bloomer! Love ALL of yours!

Joseph - Some nice N series vines. Where did you say you get them from?

Here is a collage of some of mine from this year. I have individual photos on another site.

And I have recently had some rather interesting mutant blooms on some of those vines! Again, individual photos elsewhere on the internet.

Jackie - I am taking your advice and trying to root 5 cutting of my lavender Sazanami in a vase. Seems my squirrels or some other animal broke the main vine off and I found almost the entire vine wilting this morning. Grrrr ... But I cut them up into 5 pieces and have them in water right now. I even have a bloom on one of the vines! LOL! I have my fingers crossed that they produce roots so I can transplant them into a bucket soon. :-)

Great blooms Helena, love the small Kikyo Lace

Joseph, gorgeous N19

Becky, beautful blooms, so happy I have a Silver Wolf. Love its regular
blooms and the mutant bloom
Crazy about your Blue Speckles, so different

Within a week, I will finally have blooms, some planted since March 21.

Impressive, especially the pink silk and all the mutant blooms are incredibles. I am waiting for some pretty ones to climb and bloom... So far, I only have 2 different kinds blooming. The shredded purple from Summer Hills does not seem to be producing seeds. I may need to try to hand pollinate...

Will the F1 offspring of a three way cross be identical? Just curious.

Thanks Jackie and Nicole! I can't wait to see more of what you both are growing this year! :-)

Tony - It will be identical ONLY if the cross is stable. It usually takes 3 generations of grow-outs to know that. Sometimes more depending on the hybrid. So the answer to your question ... you won't know until you grow it out again and again and again. (At least 3 times!) :-)

I was saying that if I was to take the F1 single cross and cross it with a pure bred with the pure bred being the mother, would the seeds harvested from that 3 way cross be identical. Sorry if I asked the question in a misunderstanding way.

Tony - I honestly don't know. I would think that if you crossed the F1 with the mother plant that you might get something that looks like both ... or the mother plant ... or the offspring plant ... or even something totally different if a recessive gene shows up! LOL! Sorry I couldn't give you a more definite answer. If you want it to look the same, I'd cross it with itself and then think positive and maybe sing to your vine... :-p~~~

Becky, Oops, forgot you are trying your hand at rooting your broken stem
cuttings. Sometimes they can root so fast I don't even have time
to change out the rooting water. I just give then an inch or so of water to root in. Just forget about them for a few days and you will probably find them rooted. :-)
