Ooh, a nice Roman Candy. First one I've seen in a long time.

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

went downstairs and the red feather and the purple with white tips and the red with white edges are bloming.. dead camera batteries, tho.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie and Debra. All pretty blues and Roman Candy Jackie and Debra.

I have a few more repeats this morning, glad to have them blooming.

love your full moon the best tonight, Helena. The water color one is my second fav so far. Sure love the way it looks all painted like.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Gorgeous watercolor Helena. The color is remarkable.
Do you see a hint of yellow in Full Moon?

Gautier, MS

Thanks Debra and Jackie.

I like Full Moon a lot too and it does show a hint of yellow even though it doesn't come out that good on the pictures.


Guess what I missed the first bloom on my Ochracea but there's another bud to open in a day or so. Just hope that it's not a small bloom, hope the yellow is bright too. I started the seed this past spring and had it growing outside all summer. Now it's in the gh.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Helena, thats what happened to me on my ochracea, almost missed it among the foliage.
Ochracea is large compared to the obscura light yellow blooms. I have never been able to germinate
an obscura for some reason. I think I might need to grow it on the fence in summer letting
Mother Nature do all the work for me. :-)

Gautier, MS

Here's my ochracea bud Jackie. I guess it'll open tomorrow. My first try to germinate ochracea seed years ago failed even after a month I checked and the seed was hard as a rock. It did germinate after I nicked and soacked it overnight on my second try.

I think the blooms on obscura is really light yellow. I also grew it a few years ago.

Love the Watercolor and Pretty Pink.

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie.

Good thing I checked in the gh again, after it warmed up ochracea opened. But to me it's still a small bloom.

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

looks like one I had this summer, only the one I had outside was really dark yellow. I have obscura and ochracea seeds both, so will give them a go again, but am sure my obscura and ochracea vines are still alive, maybe dormant?

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Helena, its very pretty regardless of the size.
Debra. If they're outside, I'm sure they're dormant. My ochracea is greenhoused for the winter so it doesn't go
dormant. :-)

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

oh no they are inside, dormant.. it is like 17 out.. nothing would survive this cold I think..

Gautier, MS

The ochracea bloom is still open today along with a few others. Here to enjoy the blooms did a few need things.

Gautier, MS

I think the 2 blooms are from yesterday and the purple blue are todays.

Mauve splash will always be a favorite.

And blue again.

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Debra. I don't understand why yours went dormant. Maybe just the change of environment when you took yours inside after being out for the summer?

Helena. all are lovely but the Blue is my favorite, I love it.

(Debra) Derby, KS(Zone 6a)

the MS and the Blue are both beautiful!

All the prennials are dormant except for the i plantesis which nrmally is, and the stictocardia. The moon vine should bloom again tonight.

Lee's Summit, MO(Zone 6a)

Good morning, Deb! All the m.g.'s are gorgeous!

Jacksonville, AR(Zone 7b)

Deb, looking forward to any pics you share of stictocardia, platensis and the Moon vine too. :-)

Edited to correct stictocardia spelling

Deb, I'm looking forward to any pictures you can share of the I. plantesis, Stictocardia & moon vine, too.

Helen, love all your mgs, but those blizzards, like your mauve splash here - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=8964661 - so often remind me of Van Gogh's Starry Night painting. The dark, solid, thin rays of your MS are like those cedars he painted reaching up to the stars - http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/full.php?ID=25796

I don't know how I'm going to get through this winter without my daily fix of y'alls morning glory pics - I appreciate them very much.

Gautier, MS

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to your pictures too Debra.

Love your yellow O Jackie.

That was a nice reference to Van Gogh's painting Karen. It feels like spring here today!

Another MS here.

Thanks Helena, lovely Mauve Splash,

Gautier, MS

Thanks Jackie. I wonder if that color will change when I grow it again in the summer.

A couple more blooms.

Gautier, MS

Took this one outside for a picture. Was nice yesterday but cold again today.

Gautier, MS

This one too. I hope it got pollinated.

Helena, I hope they all got pollinated for you.
Your Mauve Splash will most likely make different blooms this summer. The yr I grew 2 of Beckys M.S.,
the flowers differed even on the same vine like yours appears to be doing. The blooms are very variable
Your blooms are lovely today.
