"Roman Candy", pale Cotton candy-pink Japanese morning glory, with white picotee edges. A proflice bloomer that will have the vine covered in blooms most of the season. With the variegated green/silver green foliage this one is a real beauty indeed.
The blooms on these are abit smaller than the other JMG but I was still impressed because of the amount of blooms produced.
