Karen, Beautiful blue waterlily, capensis?

(Zone 7a)

Jackie, it came as Dauphin a few years ago, and there was a species name which was similar, but I can't find anything on it now with a quick Google search. It's relatively shade tolerant and can be grown in a container the size of a brandy glass to anything larger - viviparous too. But, as Debra once said, it "fwoze."

Our current aquatic victim is Margaret Mary which so far is blooming beautifully in its temporary laundry basin among Christmas roses running amok beneath box elders.

Blue, I remember a Daubin that was in one of the Water Lily catalogs. It was small and
tropical. Dauphin might be an offspring. I lost one of the blues many yrs go. I should have set up a small tub in the g house and it could have wintered there safely, Hindsite and all that.....

(Zone 7a)

Jackie, you're right - this is Nymphaea x daubenyana 'Dauben' - not Dauphin. I would love to grow this one again, due to the $-saving attribute of being able to grow an offset in a small glass jar over winter, from where the leaf meets the "stalk" - that has worked fine in the past with just winter window light - not to mention the shade tolerance and adaptability to small containers all summer.

Karen, someone here at Daves might be growing it. I ordered sds one yr for a blue but
I didn't have any luck trying to grow the small blue from sd. I found seeds at Chilterns in England.
My last order from them was incinerated by customs. :-(

This year it starts very .... very slowly!
Sequence: seeking pollen ....desperately !

Very pretty Dany, the fourth one is real nice!

(Zone 7a)

Dany - boo to the Powers that Be for so little pollen on such gorgeous morning glories!

(To newbies - there are a couple of diagrams in the sticky index, under Morphology, of a morning glory that show where the pollen is, which is on the anthers. There are 5 anthers that carry the pollen and that are located around the stigma in the middle - http://www.cs.umb.edu/~whaber/Monte/Plant/Conv/conv-part.html . The sticky index also has a section on pollination which shows how this works.)

Jackie - Big Ouch on customs incinerating Chiltern's seeds, which imho has a selection without par in other American vendors that I know about. Hopefully next year I'll be able to do a search for the Dauben again.

My late-germinated morning glories are vining and there are more to get into the ground and away from each other's tendrils - gonna be in the 90s and humid today - easier on the flowers than on the human

Oops Luvs - we crossed - Dany's #3 is calling to me

Beautiful blooms Dany! I like them all.

It's raining cat's and dog's here so there will be no mg's for me today.

Richland, WA(Zone 7b)

I am confused- my MGs are all in the same conditions, but only one group is blooming- (1st photo)- they have small skimpy leaves, and the other two trellises have nice big leaves but no blooms-the middle one is showing some, but the lush one on the left only has very tiny (3rd photo) clusters of tiny buds which fall off. The stems have big growths that almost look like thorns- is that the things that grab to climb? If all I am going to get is leaves they are coming up fast! Any help is welcome.

(Ronnie), PA(Zone 6b)

Jo are they all the same kind?

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Thanks for the name, it is Dany's seed #4.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

It does look a lot like Mauve Splash,wonder if that's how Mauve Splash originated?

Thanks for the info Dany!
Beautiful!

Dany, Mauve Splash is a beautiful Morning Glory. I love all of its different looks.
Beautiful blues. :Looking forward to all of your lovely blooms.

(Zone 7a)

Dany - the Japanese bred MGs to look like fringed Dianthus and incurved Chrysanthemum, so why couldn't a MG be bred to look like your petunia? What a beautiful dream to wish for :)

Love everyone's flowers.

Dany, those are beautiful!

(Ronnie), PA(Zone 6b)

Gorgeous Dany!

(Zone 7a)

Dany, thank you especially for #1 - am starved for blue sky. It's been raining/drizzling here for weeks just like it did when Dad was stationed in Germany long ago. Am enjoying your glories while we wait for ours to bloom.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Beautiful split petaled purpureas Dany.


Gautier, MS

Pretty tie dye Jackie from Tony's seed. It's been raining so much here that I had to take my new seedlings into the gh.

Gorgeous blooms Dany, am enjoying them all.
