Sunsmile Mix, is a mixture of many Japanese Morning Glories: Kaori, Beni, Umi Sea, no Mai, Izumi, Umi, including others. This is the way the packet came, as a mix. The names I mention here are so far, the ones that I have seen bloom in this mix. They all have varigated 3-lobed leaves, large "happy" blooms and stay open nearly all day, some into the following day. Very nice mixture here.
