Still waiting on blooms from most of mine.
This is supposed to be Helena's blue on blue star, looks like a lovely Silky Blue.
I love it Helena. My favorite shade of blue

Jackie, pretty color, glad you like it. I was hoping that that one was one of Karen's2005 blue with a darker blue star. But anyway keep an eye on it. It was a nice big bloom when I grew it.

Dany's lovely #8

1st bloom from no Sora cross , but like most of the sds I gathered from the cross, they are making the regular Fuji no Sora blooms :-(

Nice Star of Yelta bloom Jo. I just bought a pkt of those yesterday.

I have the same old blooms today but did have this interesting bloom from Tony's PTD # 3. It had been blooming a very pale pink. Can't wait to see

OK-- I just looked at the Japan exhibit, and I am amazed- are they actually grown in those tiny pots, and do they naturally flower on such short stems?There must be some magic done somewhere! Someone PLEASE tell me what they do- I pamper my seedlings and they grow lush leaves, but most of them are yet to even get buds on them. Do they not like being in the ground with lots of room?

some of mine grow long vines and never bloom until late, some bloom before they get the first ft of vine, some get multi stems when they get broken, some get snipped on purpose, you never can get an exact answer for how they bloom or when, it is just the morning glory way.. I snip my long viners at the top 6 inches when they are climbing up in a swirl..
I have two whites opened, and a white mg bush, and a lav mg bush.. I have had this vine for two years, this is the first thing to bloom this spring. pale pale yellow with burgandy throat, weird five finger leave, different from my other tropical glorys..
this lobata and helenas mix has been vining for over a month, i have not snipped at it yet, I do a lot of twining instead..
I love the new blue star blizzard,Helena, it is beautiful.. I have a pink that dany sent, it is really unusual, but the rain keeps melting it..
the messina creeper, setosa, lav moon vines, and moonflowers are all over the fence to the north.. and in the sunflower tomatoe patch.. the i nils from everyone are just now starting to climb the poles here..

1 - Debra ... I hope there will be seeds!
2 - chimera : " The mutation will not be passed on to the seeds of the plant since the mutation did not occur in the germ cells of the plant" . ( Dan Egel, Extension Vegetable Pathologist, SWPAC, Purdue University).
3 - four star purpurea .

JoParrot - Regarding your question - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=9615674 - about how the Japanese train their MGs to bloom on such short plants, here are a few different facets involved.

First - pruning - go to the sticky index at the top of this forum, under "TRELLISING and/or PRUNING MG VINES" and check out entries 2, 3 & 4

Second - fertilizer - I don't know exactly, but they may use a fertilizer relatively high in phosphorus for the flowers. Those 3 numbers on fertilizer refer to N - P - K or Nitrogen (leaves), Phosphorus (flowers), Potassium (stem/root) respectively. You might check out "FERTILIZATION" in the sticky index, too.

Third - light - A period of time, in which each day has less hours of light than the previous day, such as in the autumn but also simulated by covering with something like a box, can induce flowering. See "PHOTOPERIODISM" in the sticky index.

Fourth - genes - I don't know the names or labels of the MGs in Dany's photos of morning glory festivals in Japan, but I strongly suspect they probably have selected the best cultivars for that purpose - mostly within Ipomoea nil.
----------------------------

Maybe we can't replicate exactly what the Japanese do, but I think anyone could approximate a display like this and wish we could all hold festivals like this wherever we are - and not just for morning glories.
--------------------------

Jo - many of the above considerations also apply to the question you asked - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=9588923 - earlier about why your vines weren't blooming. It was hard to answer your question without knowing more details about your growing conditions or which MG species or cultivars you are growing, but did you ever narrow the possible explanations down to answer your question? Your answer might become a great resource for this particular type of question in our sticky.
--------------------------------

Dany - thanks for explaining chimera - it gives new meaning to the old adage that "Nothing stays the same." Although how wonderful for Japan to celebrate flowers the way it does in exhibitions and festivals for so many centuries - glad that has not changed :)

--------------------------------------
Am so enjoying this forum's latest festival while I tussle with my camera software and watch my vines spiral up and out - Tony's Orihime & others; Dany's pics of exhibition, blues & others; Helen's Blue Star Blizzard from Dany; Jo's I. purpurea 'Star of Yelta'; Debra's extravaganza to Goddess Flora - wonderful to see summer picking up here.

Any comments that may make mine more accurate or clear would be most welcome.

Thanks Karen, I had forgotten about those stickys.. still, it's so exciting how a morning glory changes it's face every morning .. I have had them blooming profusely downstairs under the ceiling light nice big huge blooms without the real sun, and being fed laundry water .. LOL

LK. I have estabablished plants, let me send you one//
and there are lots of seeds from the pale yellow one, I hope the other two yellows show up.
Jackie's blooms appear to be on shorter vines, maybe she can share her secret?

Thanks Debra,
I'm clueless re the height issue. I have a couple 10 inches tall in 8 oz foam cups on the front porch that bloomed a time or two. No food, I haven't
had time to feed them.
Then in the back yard, I have 5 footers and some of them just now making buds 3 or 4
feet up the stem. So no understanding the method to their blooming or why
some bloom faster than others. Its possible that the mg vines in the
'small 8 oz cups are already 2 to 3 months old and just past ready to bloom.
They all feel the need to bloom and then set seeds and
they will do that early if they think they are going to croak.
One possibility is when the roots hit the bottom of the foam cup, it stresses the vine
and so it responds by forming buds

Mine set buds on the front porch too Debra where no sun ever touches.

Blue Star of India, really its dressed in purple, camera just can't capture the color
Tony's PTD # 3, this reminds me of the white from Sunrise Mixed I grew
several yrs go.
Blue Lavender Beauty
Crimson Rambler
Berlin Blue, bugs got to this one

Great blooms Dany.

I agree, they are a treasure. I like your star of india.. I havn't had that one for a while now.. my sisters white i purp bloomed, she went to this house that was vacant and picked a whole bunch of seeds off the vone, it had covered the house entirely across the front of it and up the fir trees ..i saw it with her when it was in bloom, and told her I wanted some seeds.. she went back and got them for me.. That was a sisterly love gift..
.. July 30 2010,this was the first year I decided to build green walls around the patio.Then, he got me the arch arbor thing, he had it set up middle of patio north side back then.august 2011 then here it is 2012, 2013 we moved it to north east corner .. by end of season last year I had arches of sunflowers covered in vines. Bad location, the power lines are directly above it and I have had to rush around trimming and tying things together when a storm was approching.. My kids came home to me sanding on a chair with the grabbers, trying to reach a too tall vine covered sunflower to tie down or whack.. sheesh!

Gorgeous blooms Dany.

Love your Pink Star Linda. Like the others too.

I had a few this morning. I had to carry some of them to the g house and those blooms were melted by the sun.

One of my 3 no Mai's
Beckys Pink silk not. Looks like Akatsuki no Umi with pretty varieg lvs. The
sun got to this one b4 I even thought about waking up.
Finally a Youjiro Yaguruma near pandy.
A no name looks like Hatsu Arashi, plain green lvs
I possibly have all 3 look-a-like blooms, Hatsu Arashi, no Umi, and Berlin Blue,
just an accident
Another no Mai
I'm going to have a few un-named mg's due to the raccoons overturning
a trey of mg's and other seedlings a month ago. Lost a bunch of them

So---if I am understanding what I am reading, even the experts don't have real control of MGs- as far as height, climbing or not, etc. I don't feel so bad now- but I am a bit disappointed because I set up 3 trellises with the plan to have them covered with beautiful blooming MGs- it didn't happen! I have to find another attractive vine to plant there- probably some type of Jasmine. Meanwhile I love seeing all your blooms.

don't give up, Jo.. sometimes it takes all summer to get blooms from morning glorys..one good vine that works well and grows good with morning glorys is honeysuckle.. I am making starts of my hybrids right now, can send you one this fall to get it going..
LK, your blooms are outstanding.. don't forget we dump our sink water, bath water and laundry water out to the lawn.. it helps a ton, even tho this was the wettest July in many many years, we typically are burning up by now..
Jackie, I love your blues, you know they are my fqavs, but remember how fond I am of the no mais?

got my rain barrels set up, my water storage barrel , and the house is officially now all painted. yippee! He starts on the foundation cracks next month..

had some colors this am, didn't get shots of them, but they look just like what I grew last year this time..
from last year...

Beautiful blooms Dany, Love your Cha Cha Maru, and all your blooms.
Your garden is mind boggling, would love to be able to grow just 1/2 as many.

Helena, gorgeous blooms this morning. Crazy about your LYK cross. I know its purple but its beautiful as the camera captured it in blue. My Blue Star of India is the same. Its actually purple.
