Better late than never!
I do not know but this year I'm later than last year!
Here Q0269 from the National Collection of Japan, is a beautiful cultivar ... the last picture you can see that one of its ancestor is a red picotee.
Hellena you have the Q0538 which is the same but with a revers tube .
Dany's MGs 2012 # 1
Awesome blooms Dany. So mine is Q0538 reverse tube and not Q0269? A neat mg.
Thank you for sharing your gorgeous blooms with us Dany. Just Incredible blooms.
Very pretty Dany. I like the bigger blooms of the baby blues.
Your mg's are really beautiful! Actually awesome blooms! (edited to say this)

Me too Helena !
And the discovery this morning ..... something I had never seen!
No faking, no temperature problem because all the flowers of this plant (25) have a normal color.
This is a purpurea cultivar that is dark purple and making occasional small light blue spots ... it is on this feature that I was working ......And then bam!
Have you ever seen this??
Wow, neat! No I haven't seen this on purpureas! You do have an awesome collection of them. All beautiful.
Dany that surprise bloom is just a jaw dropper, beeutiful
Your blues are nice but I love the pretty pinks
Beautiful Blooms, Dany -
. . . and you are very welcome.
This one is awesome
Emma thanks for sharing !
This year I planted 850 seedling morning glory ... can be 600 different cultivars. In this picture there was an error! I gave a grid to a 枝垂れ Sidare in phonetics or droop plant .
These cultivars have the gene WE (weeping)... they have lost their geotropism, they can not climb the lattice is therefore useless to them.
There are so many volunteer and they are strong and healthy . Some are Hattie Bell others looks like Star of India or Hatsu Arashi. Some have variegated leaves there are even mutants ... all volonteers.
If I lived in a climate with early spring like Texas or Florida I would plant my seeds directly in the garden! .... to avoid the stress of planting.
I had no idea, there were morning glories that could not climb! I learn something new every time I visit the morning glory threads!
ALERT!! Emma , there is someone that uses your pictures to sell morning glory seeds in Japan .... lol .... lol!
Black King .... always there to help me with its pollen for crosses.
Thank you for the Alert, Dany -
I will check it out, however, I have sold LOTS of seeds to Japan this year to different people
this person did purchase a lot of my MG seeds - and he has many others from me listed as well
Also, this person is also using my photos for Plum Delight, but put her watermark on them.
In fact, I did a trade with her a few years ago
Too much fun to see so many of my MG seeds being sold in Japan
Thanks again Dany
Dany, Your mg is the one that grows in water I think. I can't remember the name right now.
The name might come to me or it might not. :-)
Beth grew this one yrs ago if this is indeed the one that grows and thrives in water
Dany, found Beths post of Ip aquatica and I'm not sure if yours is the same.
Your lvs appear to be narrower than aquatica.
Emma, your Pink and Blue MG in post ending #988 is stunning.
Thank you Jackie,
I've never seen one with these colors before that has this pattern
Its really special Emma.
Dany, heres the link for Beths MG aquatica
Edited to remove my link, it didn't work

Yes ... yes ... I've seen and you are right it is Ipomoea aquatica - in some countries they eat to be strong like Popeye! .... it's a spinach !
Water Blue :
....... Time is flowing ....... !
Beautiful flowers Dany. Is there any chance that your Shibori's are actually yellow? If so,
I will start my begging right now. :-)
