I have several I've grown from seeds this year. The plants are huge and vigorous...but not one bloom on any of the plants. Is this normal or does it require something I don't know about to flower? Any help...Thanks
Well Lo and behold... The plant is full with a zillion buds. This morning I got this :-)
So now I wonder if it blooms only in the Late Summer/Fall... or if it's the age of the vine? If its the age of the vine I will start this one very early next year. The blooms are way to pretty not to enjoy through summer.
In fact the Clarke's Heavenly Blue strain will bloom a month earlier .
But where can we find the really Clarke's Heavenly Blue strain ? on ebay, most of the Clarke's Heavenly Blue are not the real one !
I find one in Japan ! http://asagaoasagao.shop28.makeshop.jp/shopdetail/012000000006/order/
Track ... the dealer is a member of "morning glory"group of Emma on FB.
Great... I would like to know how long they take from seed to bloom for you Elsa.
I'm going to see if I can acquire REAL Clarke's Heavenly Blue 😄
Maybe I can get blooms a little earlier. I have noticed that they prefer partial shade. I have mine in Full Sun and it gets a little limp sometimes. Now that the weather is cooler it seems to be much happier.
I planted my seeds yesterday. Our Spring Date is 1 September, but we are experiencing very funny weather. "Cold" (a maximum of 68) the one day, them soaring up to 95F the next. Temps in the 90s are usually reserved for Dec - Feb!
I do agree with you. All my Morning Glories get afternoon sun, with dappled shade in the morning. I find they tend to grow just as vigorously in this position as in full sun, with the added bonus that the flowers lasts longer.
Yes it's planted next to a hyacinth bean :-) But look at how many buds are on this plant. I am inclined to believe it's a Fall bloomer. I've seen others around town and they are just now blooming also.
My camera is really off so the color is off. These are really a beautiful deeper Blue. Striking plant!
An update... I didn't get one flower. *Sigh*. We had cool, wet weather in Spring, followed by the one heatwave after the other. Just as we thought the "funny" weather was something of the past, we got rain for weeks on end. I love rain, and living in a country known for periods of drought I never complain about rain, but my plants decided they had enough. Will try again next year.
