We did get some high winds and torrential rain to an inch for an hour last night, it was headed your way.

had to cut down some 15 ft tall sunflowers as they were laying on the ground, the only ones upright thru the storm were the ones with morning glorys entwined in them.. these were taken aug 29th..

Drop dead gorgeous lavenders Debra.

Debra, must have been someone else that shared Blue Marble Not sds with you. Mine didn't make a
single sd pod last yr. I bet I don't get a pod this yr either. I'm so desperate, I went out this afternoon and tried to do the deed with an artists paint brush. I'm not even sure all the necessary parts were there to get the job done, lol Hours later, the bloom was still standing wide open like a fresh bloom.
I;m running out of sds for blue Marble Not. I don't usually have a problem getting sd pods so I don't know what to make of it Debra. I might try to take a cutting and start a new plant that way.

Beautiful blooms Debra, love your sunflowers too. Like your daughters pet turtle too.

I don't remember to whom I sent BMN seeds, only a few people I think. Odd that it doesn't make seeds but I also waited too long to start seedlings from my BMN beije seeds. I lost several attempted seedlings of it but do have at least one seedling for sure now. So will see what happens and wanting to see what kind of blooms I get.

Pretty bloom Jackie.

This is a new bloom for me, it's supposed to be a very light pink but at first it looked white spripes and gray with blizzard, maybe a cross. The bloom is small.

Helena, very interesting bloom. I can see the stripes on what looks like a white background. Cant see well enough to make out the pink. I need new glasses for sure.

Ronnie this is what my Blue Marble looked when I grew it but afterwards the next generation was not quite the same so I named them blue marble not. Also the seeds that I got from growing Blue Marble were beije and not like the dark seeds I first got. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=6488029

Yes, Jackie I see buds on a few of my new vines and they are slowly climbing.

Pretty blooms Jackie, I love your GS. So good to see that you are getting lots of blooms. Glad you had some more rain, we had a thuntherstorm yesterday evening too and a cold front this morning.
It feels great.

Ronnie pretty pink hige. I also found that the pink speckled have been small blooms for me and the higes take forever to bloom.

By chance yesterday I spotted a wild mg growing just a little NW of here, I stopped to see the blooms (a little bigger than the ones I saw in town). They had more white with pink edges and inside the throat was pink. The grass there was pretty tall so I didn't find the root vine but took several cuttings to try to see if I can root it. I want to take my camera and take pictures but feel a little too tired this morning but I don't go that way too often.

I'm back.
Well, I've gotten about 6 blooms so far. Sounds pretty pitiful but we just didn't get any hot weather this Summer. I know all you guys are just "Oh, poor baby, didn't have to roast like the rest of us". But . . . I still have hope for next year. I have had several people tell me they have those "invasive" morning glories in their gardens and I should have no trouble getting them established. I do love to look at your pictures, maybe next year I'll have some to share with you.

Dee, sorry to hear that you're not getting the blooms you were hoping for. Surprisingly in the past years I've gotten blooms here on some pretty cool mornings. They might be a bit smaller but still pretty nice. Maybe purpureas might do better for you. It's gotten cool here now, pretty nice since we did roast during the summer.

A nice blue star and a Kikyo (sp)I think, and a purpurea. This pink one was disappointed with small bloom but I do like the leaves.

Love your blooms Debra. Your Blue Silk is very light like mine.I don't know why they're so light but I
like them anyway.

I had a chocolate silk and a sunrise serenade bloom today. The ones I planted in the ground are doing nothing but the ones in the gallon pots are much happier. Maybe they like the richer soil? I have a few now that are about one foot tall and looking like they will bloom. I even have a moonflower that I may get a bloom on. I also have some perennial ones, a purple/pink and a white bush type.
They haven't bloomed but I have a much better chance of getting blooms next year with them. I also have a perennial "blue dawn" MG, unfortunately it has climbed an oak tree and we seldom see a bloom.

Thanks, Jackie. SItting here watching the little hummer hit all the orange noahs right now is such a joy before going to work. between the little orange flowers, the big pink setosas, and the jaimie lynns and shibouris upon the arbor, it is a loverly sight.

Dee, I know the blue dawn is gorgeous, I hope you get to see it bloom soon.

Beautiful blooms Debra. I love your blue silk and pink rayed and the speckled and purples are really nice too.

Dee, I do believe that they like good soil in pots. Before I decided to plant mine in the ground last couple of years, I grew them in gallon pots with good soil. Then when they getting too big for the pots, I planted in the ground. I didn't baby them and there was no transplanting shock either. They did fine. If I decide to just grow in pots though I'm going to use my giant pots. They do need more water when growing in pots.

Had Star of India bloom, Not sure if this is from Black King or not.

Thanks for the advice. I can't imagine they are going to do much more this year but I have like a dozen going in pots so I think I'll try planting the larger ones in the ground. I didn't sell a one at my "plant sales", people recognize them and state they are invasive, I should be so lucky, LOL.

Thanks Ronnie and Debra. I do like the blooms on Black King, some have been very nice. Ronnie you will love growing it.

I hope to compare Hatsu Arashi with Berlin Blue, they seem very similar. Of coarse Star of India is pretty nice.

The wild pink mg growing at 2 different spots I drive by every day.
2nd spot a property along the bayou they build up the soil to build a house but I don't think that the city approved b/c with a bad storm water from the bayou would wash the soil. Seems that the mgs were planted there to hold the soil, turned out nice to see.

Linda, I don't usually do cuttings.
Its a time problem for me. 10 cats, 6 dogs, 2 horses, over 200 plants
I'm hoping mine will make sds this time and I could share a sd or two, would be a lot easier for me.

Thanks Helena, Nice to see a Silver Shadow and I like the lite blue bloom.
Wish we knew the id to the pink mg. In one of your pics, I see heart shaped and tri-lobed lvs but I don't know if they both go with the pink blooms.
Pretty roses

Deb, send us a pic of your tree mg when you can.

Thanks Linda, Debra and Jackie. Debra, I will definetely get you some of those wild mg seeds. I hope by the end of Oct. they should have some ready. I'm also going to the other location to look for seeds ( the one with whiter blooms) probably check on them from time to time.

Love your pretty blooms Jackie, the clematis a lot too. Your mushroom is pretty neat. My silver shadow looks similar to your gray haze but maybe not the pink center? I hope I don't have the wrong name on it.

Helena, you may be right re the Silver Shadow. I had a Silver Shadow in a pot in the ghouse 2 yrs ago.
I've never grown a Gray Haze that I know of. So this might very well be a Silver Shadows.

Debra, glad you finally got a hige bloom. They're such beautiful blooms.

Beautiful George Strait and setosa.

We've had nothing but rain for 2 days now. We can expect another rain event tomorrow.
I've hid most of my mgs in the g house, cause of the rain, poor hummers can't find them.

When Ronnie mentioned above that she bought Black King, I googled the following in the google search bar:

Ipomoea + "Black King"

and a seller came up. So, if anyone else has been craving Black King, hopefully this will help.

Thank you everyone for sharing your MGs here.
