The 'full' poetic Japanese translation into English would be "Mountain Stream of Light"

Beautiful Pale powdery blue Morning Glory with specks. After a while in the sun it turns to a Mauve Blue. Maybe slightly larger than the Clarks Heavenly Blue. I loved the way it looked as if it was dusted with a light blue powder. So soft and so victorian looking, a real gem in my garden and I will plant it again and again.
