This particular flower pattern came from the Fuji no Kongo mix packet from Japan (a 2005 small co-op) here at Dave's. The flower is about 3 inches wide and has this beautiful white star shape pattern. The second flower looked just like the first. Hopefully this will set a couple of seeds for next year.

So far, this is the only one besides another youjiro that has this dark shocking pink color, the other Japanese Morning Glory with this dark color is I. nil x purpurea youjiro "Rosita" that goes by several names, but one of the commerical names is "Rosita"
