This spring I planted a few 'Cornell' morning glory seeds with among my pole beans. I had forgotten about them till today. This morning I was looking out the kitchen window and notices a gorgeous blue peering out from the foliage. Apparently 'Cornell' crossed with another morning glory as this is the result.
I have not seen a blue this rich in a morning glory before!
I think that the reddish throat makes the bloom that much more interesting.
That is a really pretty color for a flower.ReplyDelete
I'm surprises tha the picture acually captured the richness of the color. Now I just need it to set seed!Delete
Be still my heart! It's gorgeous! I always loved my "Heavenly Blue", the color was just breathtaking, but it blooms so late that two years in a row I got few or no blossoms before frost. I'm thinking of interplanting it with Grandpa next year, I might get lucky and have them both blossom....Grandpa early and Heavenly late.ReplyDelete
Let's hope that it sets seed. If It's like it's mother it blooms early. I'd have to test it as the beans have overwhelmed it.Delete
I like your idea if interplanting HB and GO. It would look stunning when they are both in bloom.
Wow, THAT is a beautiful flower! Maybe you just created a new one, ha. Very very pretty, blue is always such an unusual color in the garden. What a lovely surprise for you.ReplyDelete
Thanks 1st Man! It was quite a surprise. I'm just glad that I noticed it before the rain pouring started.Delete
Lovely. I don't even plant mine. I never have. My first seeds that I didn't plant came from the leaves I collect from the neighborhood in the fall. the next spring they started growing. Ever since then I've had morning glories. I usually let them climb up the end of the compost pile. This year they got into the sweet potato patch too and since the are so closely related I didn't even notice them until they started to bloom.ReplyDelete
I haven't planted any for a few years. 'Grandpa Ott' and the pink double reseed like weeds. I just thin out 'Grandpa Ott' and let it climb up the deck. I only planted these because I gave some 'Cornell' seeds to a friend and decided to plant a few in the beans. If it sets seed I will try this one again,Delete
Your right...that is a beautiful blue! I don't have the room to grow morning glories but I love the way they look. They will stay on my someday list!ReplyDelete
I grow them up to my 2nd story deck and aup my privacy fence. One year I grew then on a teepee in a 24" pot. They are very versatile!Delete
