Wonerful bloom, love the color combination. This is also known as HEIAN KAORI, thru Takii seed company.

This is a very large-blossomed Japanese Morning Glory (5-6 + inches easily) with a white, white skirt and scarlet red eye or throat. Unfortunately it does not endure much sun and/or wind so it tears easily and sunburns in just a couple of hours. This one will close rather quickly, if not offered protection. Should be planted in more shade.
