Isn't the color beautiful? Its a perennial and I don't know if its a plain ole morning glory or a Japanese morning glory but I love the color and it has climbed to about 5 feet. Its seed pods are pretty good size with long spurs (that's what I call them).
I would love anybody's information they can supply for me and Thanks.
The picture doesn't really show the colors good, it has 5 pink rays and the center is white with pink around it. The bloom is a light lavendar color. It has lots of seed pods which I also have a picture of if anyone needs to see them in help giving me a name for it.
Grandpa Ott's -- I bought seed about 10 years ago that was labeled as Grandpa Ott's. It was 100% white on the package and in reality. I bought it at a fancy botanical garden in New Jersey. It was sold as an heirloom morning glory. It is the only morning glory that has ever naturalized for me here in the blacklands of south Texas.
I wonder if it was mislabeled, or if there are different strains/colors.
I still think it's a purpurea cross. Can you post a pic of the seeds, seed pod on the vine and the sepals. That will all help with a positive ID of the type of flower, though not necessarily a "name" since it could be a cross as I stated in the MG forum.
Where did you get the seeds? I have one that looks very similar to it.
I got the plants from a friends house and planted them in a big flower pot at my house. She said she bought the pack of seeds last year at Dollar General Store and they were just labeled morning glory seeds.
Does anyone know of a good name for it? I thought about Lavender Delight since it is lavender with the 5 pink rays with the pink and white center. As the day goes on the bloom fades and the pink rays turn blue.
I'm open for names for it!
In my area morning glories come up everywhere and have heart shaped leaves and the Japanese Morning Glories I have seen are usually not perennials and some are hard to grow where a plain morning glory requires little care. I only have 1 Japanese morning glory that comes back each year.
I'm just wondering if my lavender morning glory is just a plain morning glory.
