Pretty Rosita Jackie.

Cool morning brought me this pretty but small bloom. Close up pictures make the bloom look bigger than it actually is.

Debra, some of the EE's have heavy variegated lvs on their own. They're just beautiful.
On my 3rd pic above, you can see the top 2 lvs are very heavy on the white. If I'remember
correctly, one of my cats had overturned that pot on the porch. I scooped
the dirt back into the pot..That's most likely how I picked up the virus. I love what it
does to the lvs.

Pretty bloom Gita, reminds me of one that I had like that too with the white throat.

Pretty delicate baby blue color Jackie.

Only had 2 repeat blooms today with a bit of rain. Confederate rose and cassia blooming too. Because cassia blooms so late here, it doesn't make seeds for me.

Oh Helena, I want that white confederate rosť. Mine starts off pink and gets almost a reddish edge tint to it.

Here are a few whiteish creamy sloteri , from some older seeds and also I put in some of the regular reds and apricot all in one pot, I have not seen the red yet. I think that this may either be a new cultivar or the cold has affected the plant. Although I do have them indoors, so I haven't a clue, unless they crossed with the others I grew in 2007.

They are the size of cypress vine flowers with the sloteri leaves. Some are multicolored star shaped.

Aren't they cute?

Nice purpureas too Jackie.

I have a new bloom from one of Dany's seeds. The other two are not so pretty repeats. These are my last vines, a late start for zinnia blooms produced a small flower.

Thanks---
The picture shows the magenta more than if you were just looking at it.
Is the name "Purporea" a general description--b/c it is purple?

I cannot remember who the seeds came from--but I have collected
a good amount of them. I know it was someone from DG.
Somehow, in my brain, is the name "Blue Rocket"...but I am not sure...
Gita

Here is another look--a bit more further away...The colors are not s intense...

Gita, purpurea is the species in the Convolvulaceae family. Not necessarily because it's purple, there are other purpureas that are pink, white, blue, streaked etc.

"Blue Rocket" would only be a marketing name for sale purposes. Most likely it is a cross of some sort. Check out some pics here at Dave's you may see something that looks like your pretty one!

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/b/Convolvulaceae/Ipomoea/purpurea/cultivar/0/

Great blooms Jackie and Helena! Looks like we've all been lucky weather wise. I had a few purps pop open, just didn't have the camera out. Hopefully a few more for me too.

Gita, purpurea refers to the species
There are tri-colors, nils and other species of mg's.. They all belong to the
convolvulacea family.
The sticky thread at the top of the mg forum might list many of the different genera? within the mg family :-)

Luvesgreatdanes--

The closest i came to ID'ing mine was the "Star of Yelta".
The odd shape of the bloom (five-sided straight edges) matches.

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/42599/

"Kniolas Black" looked similar too.

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/51629/

It is not really important to me. I do not need names of plants I grow.
I just thought, in case i ever share the seeds--it would help.

Loverly blooms, Helena, exceptional colors on that first glory and love the softness of the roses.

First pic is of white i carnea, Ronnie, will have a couple seeds if u want some, and yes 2 and 4th pic is confedrate rose, blooming inside. Don't like to wait until it is too cold to navigate when I bring in the tropicals, so we start bringing them in in August or September..That little white brug is called Little Angel.

luvs...
I have NO greenhouse. Just my Shop--which ids almost undeground as I
have a 4-level split house. It is not heated--but it is part of the house--
so it stays around high 50's all winter.

The Brugs get dug up and are cut back pretty severely and and they spend
the winter in my dark Shop. The even grow some leaves while down there...

Here I have to say that--I plant my brugs pot-in-pot. I cut out holes on the sides
of a 3gal., black nursery pot I plant them in that--and then bury that pot either in
a bed or in another, larger pot.
When I dig it up--I have to sever all the roots that grew out through the holes--
and lift the pot out. But that is OK. They just sit semi-dormant in my cool dark basement.
I do not water them much--maybe a bit now and then. Brugs are really tough plants!

This is the way I learned to grow them here--as they cannot be left outside
for the winter. Before I came to DG--I was on GW and there were some
really experienced brug people there that I learned a lot from.

My Dr. Seuss is wayyyy too big to bring in by now. So--I will cut it back
and cut all the woody stems up in 5"-6" sections. I will then deliver them to
an Arboretum that will accept them and grow them out to sell. Maybe, by the time
it is all cut up, even the big plant itself will fit...somehow...in my small Subaru Outback.
It has to go! I cannot keep it at this size. I will start all over again from a cutting.
Been there--done that---many times.
I root the cuttings I keep right into fresh Mix--NEVER in water. The root in less than 10 days.
Tried the water eons ago--and they all got slimy and died.
Soil works best for all kinds of cuttings. Coleus do amazingly!

Here are my Brug cuttings on a plant shelf by a window from 2011.

This is, pretty much, where my brugs live all winter. YUK!

Some blue dawn in a pot.. I saw a hum bird moth on these guys and carpenter bees love these send only one of the Brugs, cypress gardens, they seemed to ignore the other Brugs flowers. I'm working in this area this morning, everything is still outdoors.

Nice purpurea Gita. The purpureas will reseed in zone 5/6 that I know of, the slid purpureas are all over the place in zone 4 and 5. Other cold species mgs are usually very invasive and will strangle your other plants. Very difficult to get rid of theses guys..

I have a few i nils Gita, those are the bigger prettier ones that are not quite as agressive as the i purpurea. I would love to see you grow some of my seeds out. Would not be able to ID them , tho, I am horrible at names of all these blooms.

I like: Blue with white stripes, and pink and white stripe, and lavender with purple star, for ID names LOL

Getting ready to hit the sack, I work in a few hours, didn't have to be to work till one Friday, so I slept until 11:45.. still made it to work by 1 pm.

Helena, that is a cool look to that bloom, is it getting chillier there? We had 51 mph at 65 degrees today.

Jackie, your no mais are always a treat to see. And that NOID is pretty, too. Sat and sorted another big tray of dried seed heads tonight in my lazyboy while watching tv with Joe after work, now those are done and my Living room is trashed.

these are from October of 2012, my sister was here, we had a good week that year. I miss her a ton right now..

Debra--

I am not a "names" person either.
Now--"Nils" seems a variety of MG--vs, Purpurea. Correct?
I could use a "beyyer behaved" one by my shed--as it does not have
a lot of space to climb.

I like #4 the best. I like strong colors...
I will be happy to get a few seeds of that one from you.
Will reimburse you for postage.

Thanks, Gita

I believe your Ivy is called "Algerian ivy". Usually sold for outdoor planting--
BIG leaves...long runners/stems..

Pretty blooms Jackie, your neat ivy leaves and Turk caps seedlings look great. I'm waiting for mine to germinate too.

Only mg to open today, close up makes it appear to be a lot larger bloom than it really is.

I had some seeds I was given that I planted, and never seemed to have any luck getting then to grow. Finally got 1 tiny vine...maybe 10 inches long that produced a bloom.

I have decent luck with just about anything else I try to grow, MG's have been my kryptonite. LOL

I put some of my seeds in pots and some were directly sowed into the ground in the place I wanted them to grow permanently. I think the biggest problem, might have been lack of sunlight. I know they say to grow them in full sun, but being down here in central Florida, full sun does not always mean full sun. Full Florida summer sun can be brutal on plants, even those that are supposed to be in full sun. The area I planted them is along an ugly chain link fence and that area was getting over run by my neighbor's cherry laurel trees. They were taking over and becoming invasive. I would do everything I could to keep them on his side of the fence, and FINALLY convinced him to cut them back. Found out what he wanted to do with them, and I started hacking away with a chainsaw. Once I started, it finally lit a fire in him and he has spent most of the last week really cleaning out that area. It has really opened the area up and I have a lot more sun coming through. I think that might be what triggered the MGs!

I have 2 kind of MG seeds, something called "Emma's Gift" and another simply called Japanese MG.

Shauna, the nils cross with each other and sometimes the nils and purps cross.
My Lite Blue Tie dye (nil) has to be a cross. Perhaps Tai aki pollen from a bee that visited my regular Blue Tie Dye.

Ronnie and Debra, we have a time with the horses. I sneak down to the barn to get hay for the goats next door. If Bill and Goldie catch me, they try to cut me off saying where you going with our hay.
Sometimes Bill sneaks up on me, puts his face in the center of my back and trys to push me all around the pasture. Hes a bully, thats all there is to it. If I'm in the pasture and I see him
coming. I just drop everything and go to running, lol

LOL I can see that happening. I havn't been on a horse since I was 17. I always liked to stop on certain roads off the hiway to see the horses at the fence , take pics of them and give them apples. There are three between Rogers Arkansas and Winfield, Ks.

You are going to have to sneak that hay to the goats in a pillow case ;D

Happy Belated Birthday Ronnie!

Stopped at my neighbor's house the other day and low and behold, she had (what I think) was a moonflower, Ipomoea alba growing in one of her rose of sharon hibiscus pots. The bloom caught my eye because it was huge compared to the other MG blooms I have seen and had such a sweet scent. I asked her where she got it from and she said it must have grown through the fence and gave it to me.

I pulled up the plant, trying to save as many roots as possible and transplanted it. I am hoping that once it gets over the transplant shock, it continues to grow.

I think that once she noticed the vine, if I hadn't been there...she would have ripped it out and threw it away.

So, glad I was there to take it from her.

I know that when I transplanted it, I should have cut the developing buds off so it would use energy to grow and not bloom, but I didn't and came home to an open bloom last night.
