Beautiful pics Dany, A and Helena.
Kukuo, Look how much this one looks like BMN
Purple Tie Dye
Nasty mushroom, gross, My yard is loaded with mushrooms. Oops,
forgot I sent this one already,
I agree, the colors on display are amazing. love the morning pics, A, and even tho it is rained on, Helena, the bloom colors still stand out..
We got more rain, and more mushrooms,
Jackie you no mai and the purple tyedye are beautiful.
Thanks Debra. Its amazing the amount of rain we've had here in the last 2 weeks.,
Much appreciated but wish we could catch a little break. It will get down in the 80's for the next few days and nights coming up in the 50's. An early fall? If so, its a few weeks early.
2 completely different blooms open at the same time on Helenas Azuremore
I'm starting to get a bunch each day. I've waited a long time
My no sora cross finally making the cross blooms.
The light cross bloom is the same type I got the 1st yr I grew out the cross sds. The darker bloom is pretty much identical to the original cross bloom it made.
Tonys # 3 PTD a beautiful white
Aogakiyama x Choc Silk
Azuremore still making 2 diff blooms each day.,
Purple George Strait
This reminds me of Helenas Watercolor. Mine is coming off of the vine marked as
Pink Silk from Becky. It made its 1st bloom looking like a No Umi, beautiful bright blue bloom and varieg lvs. But just look at this. I
marked it just in case it makes a seed pod.
Dany, I see at least one seed pod. I will save you some seeds for you. I have at least 2 vines of those.
Beautiful blooms Jackie. I have several from your seeds today. A very dark no Mai, the picture shows a bright pink but the color is much darker. Then your pink tie dye with a flag and another pink bloom.
If you ladies use your phone for taking pictures, install an app called dropbox on your phone and computer. Once you take a picture it will automatically place your pictures in the drop box. it works on the iPad too! I really like it, it is free, and I don't have to plug in and download!
Beautiful blooms Dany, Helena and Jo
Dany, love your Saz's.
Helena, love that Purple and blue mix mg from the 1st set of pics
and that gorgeous purple from your last pics.,
Jo love your mg blooms as well as your Hibiscus and Pepper
Today I had a Choc Silk
Hot Pink Rambler
what might be a Xiongs
Plum Purple Velvet aka PPV
evening folks, sure have posted some beautiful blooms and plants. really enjoy seeing them. Jo your rebbecca is awsome and Helena love the large purple . Jackie the pink porcelain and the
purple tye dye are some beautys.
Of course As always Dany gives beauty in his displays.
joeswife, thanks-(but I don't even know what rebbecca is!) I had 6 different names that people had nent me, and each is in a seperate pot at the bottom of my bird feeder- I'm sure that was not one of the names-?
I can't wait to see this bloom in the morning or soon thereafter. From hairy sd that could be the one I also call indica; soft thorns, hairy lvs and stems, aka blue Dawn flower. Ron calls this something else but theres no way I can remember what that is, too much stress.
Pretty split petal purp
Unknown in 8 oz cup
Mutant, the hummers or bunble bees have torn it up this morning.

Dany - WOW! As a poetNOT, I think your morning glories are very lovely - any 19th century Samurai would have loved to have these flowering in his garden :) Van Gogh could have painted whole night skies out of your blues.
So, it's the 21st century and we call these "no good"? Au contraire, my fellow MG lover - these are beauties :)
A few more
For sure this one came out of mis named seeds, Marked as PPV, pretty sure its a no Mai
Ronnies beautiful split petal. The only dff that I can see in this and PPV, 3rd bloom above, is PPV has varieg lvs and Split Petal doesn't.
Out of Fuji no Sora cross. so happy to have this blooming, hand pollinating when I can remember.
Pretty blooms Jo and Jackie. Really nice show. I really enjoy seeing the blooms and that all your leaves are nice and healthy. My vines are stunted and the leaves don't look good at all. I rescued my vines from the rain into the gh and it looks like maybe it'll stop raining.
No Mai blooming in gh, but I had to rinse the dirt off.
Ronnie - The rust has just begun here - one leaf on Kanoko - no flowers on any of them yet, except for a strangely mutated Ipomoea hederacea which looks sort of milky mauve-pink, instead of blue like the common parent species. However, the parent of this one had a narrow, spidery star along its 5 primary folds of a contrasting blue.
Helen & Debra - sorry to hear about all this rain making your mgs too soggy. Some of mine are in the ground and others in pots, but maybe because they are all on sloping ground, they don't seem to be overly watered. Instead, we're getting overly chomped by critters grrr.
Dany, I had lost your seeds when I sowed this summer's morning glories, but found them a couple of weeks ago and plan to grow some indoors later this fall and winter. Ronnie's are so inspiring.
Helen, Jackie & Jo - what a show y'all are making - beautiful
everyone has gorgeous blooms and pretty shapes and lots of intresting features. Been missing mine as I have been sick or at work, bleah.. cold weather is coming I can tell. boo hoo..
found my orihieme had bloomed and melted, as did a kikyo and a weird tri colored stripe one.. orange noah and the lil yellow one are feeding the hummers, my moon flowers are a blooming.. that is all from here right now..
Ipomoea indica ' TOKIKO KATO ' make seeds .
I've never had seeds from the wild form of Ipomoea indica ... the Blue one!
I made the crossing Ip.indica' TOKIKO KATO ' and wild Ip.indica ... we'll see if there is a result! !
1 - 2 wild Ip. indica.
3 - 4 Ip.indica' TOKIKO KATO ' .
Karen, I've rooted elephant ears, gingers etc in cups of water. Night blooming orchid cactus's too. I'm sure I've rooted even stranger things in water.
Gorgeous blooms Dany.,
A, that is carnea. I hope it makes seeds this yr. However it too roots in a cup of water.
setosa closing b4 I wake up.
Carnea in the sun this morning
No sora cross
Love the color on this one
Thanks Helena and Debra.
Gorgeous blooms Debra and Helena
Debra, your 3rd bloom on the 1st row looks like what I am calling Lite blue tie dye. I
wonder if my Blue tie dyes did not come up and I might have planted some of your
Patio Mix sds in those pots. I love all your blooms. I'd say they were all worth
Helena, very pretty blooms. Is that 1st one your Watercolor?
Blue lavender Beauty
Lite blue Tie Dye
Thanks, LK . Oh yes, feeling better, amazing what antibiotics can do. My poor lil helper has pnuemonia, tho, he is so small. I am wishing him speedy recovery. They just keep me from getting that nasty stuff when I get sick..
Jackie I love the tye dye, I am sure it is from you, and the purple one up there with star is one from Dany..
Your blooms are always a treat to see. Helena, your favorites look good to me, I can see why you call them old favs.
A, I hear ya on the arches, my Dh is gonna have to do a couple more for me, too. We had rain 9 out of 15 days and now we are in the hot dry spell, so things in pots are drying out fast, sure glad I have tubs of rain water to dip out sitting around. The skeeters are horrible all over here, so I keep any water covered up and treated. Jackie, I think I have a seed pod on the white i carnea.
And I have a bunch of blooms almost ready to open from all of you.. I think the pres bush is Gorgeous.
Thanks everyone. Beautiful blooms you've got going on there A.
I love Pres Bush mg too A and Debra. One of my all time favorites. I really like
the one I have labeled as Lite Blue Tie dye too. I have two of them so hard to think
I could have them mis labeled when they're making the same bloom.
Debra, your hige is beautiful, so glad you got one. I don't know if I;m going to get one
or not. Hope its just blooming late this yr.
Thanks Linda. That is Fuji Shibori.
Helena, I agree with Linda, lovely soft colors.
I'll send bloom pics a little later.
Still running like a mad woman trying to finish up school shopping.
Just when you think you're thru, combination locks, art supplies, etc :-)
I can empathize with you Jackie! My DGDs drove me crazy this summer, looking forward to school starting and some downtime with my husband...they don't live here but almost, here everyday from 7:30 to 5:30...as tiring as it can be I'm glad I can be here for them.
Great blooms everyone! Debra glad to see you posting and hope you are doing well!
Ronnie, Mine live with me, 3 of them, and we are crazy about them but ready for
a break here. So we do spell relief SCHOOL, lol
Beautiful blooms Ronnie. Gorgeous white with blue speckles.
Maypops on our sons property next door. Lilac and white ones too. I'm sure the
white one has a different name but can't recall it right now.
Look at the size of the fruit, just huge.
I love this one and hope it makes sds.
No Umi??? that came to me as Pink Silk sds
Jackie I love those maypops, I found some out in the country last year, fruits and all, planted a ton of them, waiting to see if any pop up. Ronnie, your blooms are gorgeous and like Jackie and Helena, I cant pick a favorite. Wish I had some GK's to drive me crazy, but prolly wouldn't work with me working full time as it is.
That first soft one is a beuty Helena, and I love the dark purple one the best after all, Ronnie.
Helena, unless the raccoons steal all the fruits, I should have plenty of sds. I'll try
to gather a bunch.. You can try some just as they are and chill some too for 8 weeks or so
since it is a perennial. If you do well with the maypop, you might want to keep lots of the
baby vines pulled, it is considered invasive.
I should have saved this pic for the new thread, shoot!!
No Linda, You didn't miss it. I always tell you when I have started a new one and give the link.
I don't do that till we reach or get close to 100 posts. :-)
Beautiful blooms Helena. I sure do like that multi-color #3. Is that the mutant?
Azuremore, thanks for this one Helena. It is the best blooming of all my mg's.
