MORNING GLORY - Grandpa Ott\'s

Ipomoea purpurea ‘Grandpa Ott’s’ - A treasured heirloom brought to Iowa from Bavaria and saved by the Whealey family of Iowa, this carefree beauty boasts a profusion of small deep-purple flowers with a red star and a glowing pearly red throat.

Not to be confused with their pesky cousin, bindweed, these annual morning glories are a nostalgic symbol of the cottage gardens of the “new world”. For twining up a porch, mailbox, fence, etc. these heat-loving beauties are indispensable. The bloom time of morning glories depends on temperature. Blooms will unfurl as the temperature climbs and then close up if the sun gets too hot. Notice how morning glories cheerfully stay open for prolonged periods on a cloudy day. Soak seeds 24 hours and D.S. in a hot spot or Germ. 65o-70o and Tr. Use individual pots. 10 cm.
