PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I am growing my first morning glories this year. Do you happen to know the names of the first three pictures you posted? That orange one with the tubular shaping is gorgeous (as are all the rest, too).
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.
Then you will soon be rewarded, they are fast growing and bloom profusely.
The first three pics are; Stictocardia bearviensis, Ipomoea nil (I love this delicate blue shade) and Ipomoea purpurea.
Quite a few of the species shown in this article are weeds in the tropics and most people here would pass by without a glance or even spray them with weed-killer, can you believe it?
Wow, incredible, I really like the tubular shaped ones especially the one you are calling stictocardia bearviensis. Someone here at DG sent me seed one year and I thought it was one of the wood roses or merremia. It turned out to be a vine with small white blooms nothing exotic like your photos. Are you a seed collector? I am sure there are many who would love to try some of the beauties. Thanks for the photos and great article.
There are many members of the Convlovulaceae family which produce small white flowers, in temperate area as well as tropics but we sure get more colorful ones here in the tropics.
Yes, I am a seed collector and saler, I do not think I am supposed to make any publicity here but I am the person behind barbadine.com, I grow part of the seeds I offer and collect in the wild, this being the reason why I learnt secure tree climbing, subject of the article of last week. I also collect seeds when I travel in the area, Madagascar, Mauritius, the Comoros and so on.
