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?

Hi Susan,
Did a search for you out of curiosity. Didn't realize morning glory seeds were so 'scary'. Anyway I think this is your answer.

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.

Ipomoea pes-caprae seeds which I collected from India were dark brown and had a litte hair all over the seed =)

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.

I think I found it ... ipomoea fistulosa or ipomoea carnea fistulosa. Sounds like what you might have seen brugman. I'm trying the Argyeria too. I'll have to keep it in a pot in my zone... maybe it will stay smaller.
