Several years ago this popped up in my garden. I usually hybridize (amateur lol) other tropical plants but I also was fiddling around with MGs and anything else in my yard. So then this came along and since I wasn't being scrupulous in labeling the MG seeds I don't really know if it was from something I crossed or a sport. Anyways it comes true from seed for at least the last 3 yrs. It doesn't make a ton of seeds but seemed to make more this year than last. Its kinda pretty. I'm not really sure what to call it..feathered or what? Every great once in a while when the weather changes or something it throws a single flower and I have a pic of that one too.
Some pics from last year

Thank you. They are much more blue in real life. My camera doesn't do blues very well. I got a new camera so will be able to get more accurate pics this year I hope. It does have that pinkish purple eye in the center and the buds look pinkish until they open. I am thinking of calling it Blue Flamingo because it reminds me of one (if there was such a thing) My teen dd picked that name lol.
Here is a pic with a bud (next to the flower) so you can see the bud color. Now if only it also had variegated leaves...:P

Yes, there is a PINK FORM Japanese Morning Glory called 'Pink Flamingo', a very bright and cheerful Pink -
So, you have picked a great name

Just an update. I still have these and grew out seeds last year and have had the same result. Almost all are feathered blue and just a few single popping up here and there so I guess they I consider it to be stable now (4 yrs of seed growing) :) It is a good bloomer. I grew one in the greenhouse last winter and it never went dormant and bloomed throughout the winter.
