I agree Jackie, very nice. I"m not expecting to see any pandy's growing along the side of the road this year here in town. They cut the small tree that it was growing and cleared all the area and have sign to sell the lot. It had lots of blooms last year.

Thanks Ronnie and Helena.
Helena, that big tuber is in the ground still so it might do something this coming summer. Just kind of
watch for the vine laying on the ground with nothing to climb on now. Dropped sds might sprout but that growth would be very slow since its a true perennial

All the Panduratas I see are climbing the ditches and slopes of the hiways, Helena. Don't give up.

Brazilian morning glory? there are so many called that name. I setosa has serrated edges and thorns that are soft, on the stem, Stictocardia has huge heart leaves beefy and leathery, a smooth thick stem. sbish, I am sure you got a few other types of seeds in the mix I sent you. Most of the Sept 2012 patio mixes are all having some of these..

I haven't a clue where they came from. Between the seed robin and the other large seed trade, well, it came out of the plastic bag labeled "morning glories" LOL. I do think I put them all in to germinate though so no extras available this year Shirley. They are huge seedlings compared the others that have germinated this last week. They were labeled "brazilian morning glories" so we'll just have to see what they are. They all germinated, like six of them, so theirs a good chance I 'll get some flowers and seeds! I ordered some taller humidity domes today so I can protect some of my seedlings from the mystery buggies that seem to come out in the greenhouse at night and eat things. So far they seem to prefer the brugmansia cuttings. But I cover anything I can get a dome over. I know there is some bug out in my garden that eats morning glories so I'm not putting them out until they get bigger. They were fuzzy seeds, that's unusual, so I'm hoping they are the I. setosa.

Two seed fairies sent seeds to my house today - Dany & Debra - starting to feel like a fairy myself (NOT). Debra, thank you so much for your gift of summer cheer while Winter snorts and huffs outside - it's a beautiful surprise, and I'll be sending you a surprise shortly too, albeit not MGs. Wish I had something on Dany's wish list - maybe there'll be something in my growouts next summer.

ps - to all who might have shared my seeds with others in the past - you all have my blessings - glad someone is growing them :)

Lucky for you guys. I'm glad you all received Dany's seeds, I haven't yet cause first it has to go to the main office and we have a mail lady that been working under contract bids for 29 years. It's a little different here. My mail always takes longer to get to me from over seas. I'll just have to wait a little longer.

mail takes 5 days to get to the next town..
My mail gets to Little Rock the next day.

A lovely Purp from 2011
My new plant in the g house Prince of Orange, this one has 2 headers so a free plant. Glad to
know this one can make offsets. It needs just a little more sun that what its getting to bring out the
orangy color

Nice bloom Jackie. I love how some blooms change, most of the time it's a surprise for me. I have quite a few seedlings from old seeds to see if they come true or not. Just soaked another batch of seeds. Boy it sure feels like an early spring here. Hope it doesn't turn out to be an early April fools day though. I noticed today that the trees are budding up.

Not everyone soaks the sds first Linda. I used to but I don't now. Its just a matter of personal preference.
It doesn't take that much longer if you don't pre-soak..Helena is doing what works best for her.
Be sure and check the sticky at the top of the MG forum for all the great information.

Thanks Helena,. Last yr our trees were budding out in early Feb. I don;t think they will this yr after the cold winter we've had. But regardless they will have buds by early March. We've had 90 degree temps in March here
before. Bring it on I say. I'm tired of the cold.

Haven't checked out this forum for a couple of days & WOW I missed a lot of beautiful blooms!!! These are so pretty -- I so wish I lived where I could enjoy them year round! But , I guess looking at all your beautiful pics will have to do!!

Debra, if the mix you sent me contains any or all of the ones you pictured above , it is sure to be a beautiful display and I am very grateful for you sending them! I can't wait till it is warm enough out to get them going.

I picked up a couple packets of choice mixed colors morning glory(picture on front shows pinks/purples/reds) -- am going to mix these in with my grandpa ott seeds from last year and see what happens!

Cold here again today! Totally agree Jackie--BRING ON THE WARM WEATHER!!!

goodmorning from Rogers, Arkansas... just finished de-bugging watering and trimming the plants all over sisters house, she has been in severe pain from the fall she had last week on top of the chemo sickness, so she hasn't felt Like gardening at all. I asked Joe to snap pics of any glorys he sees blooming at my lace and a special hibiscus was budded up, so he will be on the look out for those.
Linda, I don't soak all seeds just the big ones, I have three peach tree seeds in water cup right now and will stay on top of fridge while soaking, I experimented with some seeds frm a store bought large roma tomatoe, saw they came right up in a water bottle planter in the window sill garden pink bedroom. hope I get that size tomatoes from them.

Sister has an akatsu no mai blooming in her window, was a pleasant surprise. We go to dr to get test results today. I woke up crying from a bad dream. Let's hope it is just a bad dream.
these were from patio collection 2011

Good News!!!!!!!!

Sister's cancer has not spread, the lymph nodes in chest area have shrunk, the pain she feels from the "fall" is the bone cancer, no breaks or fractures,
no more lesions on her liver and the two that are there have not grown, no fluid build up, the lesions on her lungs have shrunk, and her liver and kidneys are as healthy as most peoples. He gave her a break from the chemo, and she is going to radiate the area that the cancer has attacked her bones in the lower lumbar hip pelvic area, so that will reduce her pain, he gave her a mucsle relaxer, ( for the inflamation of the muscles in her lower back area)and she is very happy. While we are glad this is the findings, she is afraid if she stops the chemo it will be worse , so she continues the chemo after the radiation treatments.
Branson , Mo resort for two days and nights from a co worker for us starting tommorrow, and they took up a collection and gave us 200.00 for spending money. neither of us have been to branson since MOm died in 2000.
Jackie I have been looking at the computors she has stashed around here, and most of them are just OLD. LOL

She has a lot of items she wants me to sell, and when I looked up one item it shows it sold in a bottle auction for 36k. I told her we should go to that auction place and have them auction it off. it is a pink glass bitters bottle. Crazy.

She wants me to sell her "cat" collecton. she has several cool cat statues. Some of the stuff she wants me to sell are plants, too. I will be getting stuff on the store site prolly next weekend for her.
Glad I have all of you for support, I really do not want to think about what it could have been today. Thank God for you all being in my life. Her co workers are amazing. I would never see the support at my workplace like she has at hers.

Problem is, with the seeds I have that are named , I only have 2 or 3 of it and don't know which way I would have the best results!! Really want them all to succeed as last year was my first year with the morning glories (just grandpa ott) and really loved them! Guess it's time for the trial and error fun to start!!

Thanks Ronnie, I used to have the orange flowered vine that Deb sent pics of. I remember that it
had Cape as part of the name. I just couldn't remember the true
Botanical name so I looked it up by Cape. It came up under Cape Honeysuckle, Tecomaria capensis.
i think its been reclassified as Tecoma like the lovely yellow blooming vine Tecoma stans.
Mine got huge and I got tired of giving it bigger pots every yr so I finally lost it. :-(

that Debra shared with me. :-)

Thanks Ronnie. I always enjoy this one, so pretty and dark. I need to grow this one out
to increase my seed stash and Hatsu arashi too. Low on sds for both of these hybrids

Blue Lavender Beauty, one of my all time favorites. Becky sent me these sds as Lavender Beauty in 09 or 10
and was so surprised when mine turned out to be this lovely shade of blue. Last yr my vine made both colors on the same vine

Thanks Linda and Jackie. Jackie the bud from yesterday was taking it's time to open this morning but when I checked this afternoon it was open.
Here's 2 pictures of it one flash on and one with flash off (same bloom).

Here's the same Scarlet O'Hara in the afternoon taken with flash off and flash on.

Beautiful blooms Debra and Jackie. DFNM is one of my favorites too. It's windy here and too but there is still this white wild rose that started to bloom, supposed to bloom in May. Cape honeysuckle still blooming too. Not so clear pic of Scarlet O'Hara.

Thanks Ronnie, Shirley and Helena.
DFNM is a lot of fun cause you don't know what bloom it will throw next.
Stubborn about making sds.

Helena, I love your blooms. I bet the hummers love the Cape Honeysuckle in the summer.
Pretty wild Rose and SOH too.
I want to try some Eccromocarpus sds soon, tiny blooms but lots of them and I think the hummers would
like em.
Hige last summer, PPV and Purple George Strait, barely any picotee on this bloom but look at the other 2 both with picotee borders. All from last summer.

BackYard March 3rd 2006 the first winter after my new backyard project started, notice the honey locust, ( which we had to taek down cuz it was dying)
Have you ever hugged a tree? I hugged this one so many times before it's death. Oh, then the nice clear fence, before the neighbers who live there now. There is now red trumpet vine , four kinds of sweet pea, loniceras, wild grape and a new ros on their side of the fence back there, and also they have put up wood fence on their back lot line, loks so different now. Oh, I think this is one of the last times it snowed, but I might be wrong, I will have to look.

Thanks for the compliments on my pics! The third one is Convolvulus Light Blue Flash, was pretty but not a seed maker and wasn't too impressive in the container. I should have had it on the patio not all the way in the back of the yard, would have appreciated it more I think.

Debra I hear you on the tree, we have lots of old ones around here and hate to see some of them go.

Helena, Just sending pics to try and keep everyone entertained. I love going back and revisiting my former blooms.
So glad I have all my pics to enjoy.

Blue LYK , not a single seed did I gather from this one. A prolific bloomer

Jap Asago from Ronnies sd. Its a beauty, thanks Ronnie.

Purple no Mai, only made 3 or 4 purple blooms. I failed to mark the blooms for sd gathering.
