Anyone good with the ipomoea genus? I have seeds of a perennial morning glory ... with black hairy seeds. I've seen it called badoh negro but I can't find a Latin name. The seeds are different than those of the ipomoea leptophyla. Anyone out there with a clue?
Badseed - thanks for the links but I'm not sure that ipomoea violacea or rivea corymbosa are what i have here. I don't see any reference to hairy seeds... do you? A picture on one site about Albert Hoffman showed seeds that weren't hairy. These look just like regular morning glories with brown fuzzy coats. They're really weird lookin.
I saw some hairy black seeds on an Ipomea type flowering bush flowering in Belize a few years back. Flowers look just like our morning glory and face upwards on a hardwood type bush. Sounds similar...perhaps this is what you speak of..., wish I had a latin name for you. I have grown Argyeria nervosa...another morning glory relative to flowering size and the flowers were pretty, but too high up to be worth growing in my oppinion. It took 2 years to bloom as well which is not a plus.
