Gardeners' Notes:

I have grown this type of morning glory before, and it bloomed true to the description given, with the water-color 'Monet' type markings. Very unusual, not found in catalogs and normally only available through a collector. Worth growing if you can find it...

I paid a lot for a open pollinated source. I grew the seeds in new store bought potting soil. It was mixed in with a white one,two different shades of pink spoked and another purple that did not have the watercolor appearance.

This flower (from what I've read), came from a Mix of Mt. Fuji seeds that were labeled Mt. Fuji Lavender but came out with the water stained edges and was renamed by seller as Fuji no Monet because it reminded her of a painting. Very attractive flower in the garden for sure. The water stains appear in several areas making it look like a watercolor painting as per the seller statement.

I hope this remains true to its appearance.
