shows the vertical ridges on the outer(!) sepals that are distinctive for Ipomoea pandurata...

A nice closeup ID photo showing both the outer and inner sepals for the PlantFiles is recommended...

Nice photos...

Hi Ron,
Ok, Be happy to add images to the PlantFiles...

Have ANOTHER Pandurata story that I'll add from a couple of weeks ago. Just need to locate the photos.

Emma - Nice collection of Photos...if you look very(!) closely can you see any(!) hairs anywhere on the stems,leaves or especially on any of the sepals(?)...the reason I ask is there are at least 2 different subvarieties of Ipomoea pandurata and I'm trying to see if there is a consistent correlation between the completely smooth(glabrous) types, hairy types and seed characteristics...

Let me know...

TTY,...

Ron,
The vine appears to be more smooth, however, the leaves Front And Back, and the leaf stem are 'slightly' hairy. Actually the leaves feel soft to the touch, and with the 'OptiVisor' I was using, the leaves actually LOOK like Green Velvet.
No hairs on the sepals.
Looking at the Petals with these lenses --- they are very interesting!
They look like a textured fabric and they feel soft. Unlike any other MG petal that I've felt.

Emma - Thanks for the feedback(!)...Is there any possiblity that a combination of the Macro feature on your camera,angle and lighting might be able to render visible the hairs present in any photos(?)...

The woods and ditch banks on the dirt road to my house is covered with these. They are so pretty..They make huge tubers, and the flowers stay open all day.

Janett,
This bloom seemed to be about 3", but the photo that I took of the actual plant was larger. Maybe 4". So pretty.

Ron, let me see what I can do on getting a photo and will let you know.

Larkie, yes aren't they beauties...
I will also check later on these vines to see if they produce seeds.

Larkie, do you know if the vines in your area produce seeds?

Emma how blessed you are!!!! I used to have this beautiful Ipomoea growing in my backyard and I miss it. At the time I knew nothing about it other than it returned faithfully year after year with lovely blooms. Then I had a privacy fence installed a few years ago and apparently the tuber was dug up or harmed in the process as it was growing on the fence line. I sure miss my Ipomoea pandurata!!!!

Bedias, TX(Zone 8a)

WOW! What a beauty!

Baton Rouge area, LA(Zone 8b)

I love your pictures and I love the shape of the petals...very pretty!!!

Camilla, GA(Zone 8a)

I've never really looked for seeds.. I just know that they make huge tubers.. Tried to dig one up once, lol...I will try and watch..

Thanks Larkie,

Ron,
Took photos this morning of the three good leaves that are left on the Ipomoea pandurata vine. Most were not good photos, but I'll post a couple in case you see something that I don't.

wonderful finds! great photos, congrats!

You reminded me to go look for this plant again. I saw it last summer and took a piece of vine and it died. I figured it was hard to root so didn't bother getting another piece. Now that yours is ok, I think I will try again. They grow along a road we take to town in a ditch.

Jacksonville, TX(Zone 8a)

I'm not sure yet if I'll have luck with rooting my cuttings, but will keep you posted. Have another bloom on it today. Just because they are blooming doesn't mean they will root.

Ron,
I'll have a closer look at this one later today to see if there are any hairs on the leaves, doesn't look like they are on the vine.

Can't believe I'm FINALLY going to have one of these beauties in my very own yard.

Emma
