Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Cibarius On Sep 11, 2011, Cibarius from (Doug) Murfreesboro, TN wrote:

Ipomoea nil Early Call climbed my flagpole and the vine would have reached ten feet if I had not pruned it back. It made uniform, sky blue blossoms that are a delight to see in the morning. It bloomed early in July and lasted until frost.

the 'Early Call' mix is almost always a mixture of Ipomoea nil,but sometimes marketed with Ipomoea purpurea

I think this is the same as the ones we have on our roof deck this year in Chicago. We did not start from seed. We bought small new plants and they have just started to bloom. We have a mixture of deep purple and amazing blue. They took about 2 months to fill the railing but now they are awesome. I will throw a pic up in a moment. I hope they will drop some seeds for next year.

Neutral Crimson On Oct 29, 2001, Crimson from Clarksville, TN (Zone 6b) wrote:
