I am another person here that enjoys growing Morning Glories. I grow several a year in my garden. I am a hobby gardener and I've become interested in creating crosses by hand-pollinating blooms.
I received this interesting blooming vine from a seed I grew out. The seed came from a fellow gardener and cyberfriend, Gourd. I don't know the history of how this seed was created. It might have been open-pollination in her garden. I love how the blooms turned out on my vine and want to see if I can stabilize the future seeds to produce similar vines.
My experiment is to grow out 15 seeds that I collected from my vine and cull out any that don't carry the Blended Blue Speckles trait. My vine was probably a cross between a solid blue blooming vine and a speckled blooming vine.
Here is a collage photo of some of the blooms on this cross.
Oh becky, I love it when the cotyledons start to show up... makes me want to start now. You are so lucky to have good winter weather. I would start some, but, I really hate plants inside my house, I guess the whitefly and aphids creep me out when they are inside and gnats, etc..
