Gardeners' Notes:

Positive EmmaGrace On Aug 19, 2008, EmmaGrace from Jacksonville, TX (Zone 8a) wrote:

Jamie Lynn continues to be one of my very favorite Morning Glories and I can not imagine a year without growing this Unique Beauty. Even though the Blooms are a Stunning Solid White with a Soft Light Pink Halo and Sometimes Partial Star, this is still genetically a variation of the ‘Flaked’ gene. Also, some blooms will be a Very Soft Pastel Solid Blue sporadically throughout the year.

Jamie Lynn is a result of seeds that I 'Isolated' and grew separately that produced many different patterns and Pastel Colors of Extremely Pale Pink, Pale Blue, and White that were either Solid Colored or Freckled-Type Blooms. All of the seeds that I have grown since 2005 of Jamie Lynn have continued to produce ‘True’.

For those who are interested in the genetic details, Jamie Lynn is what I call the a-flaked (i.e., homozygous at the “A“ locus) white subline.
