|MORNING GLORY - Royal Ensign
Convolvulus tricolour minor - Startling deep blue trumpets with a white star encircled by a yellow throat. A dwarf \'twiner\', this variety will grow up to 2 feet long. Makes an excellent container plant. Annual.
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.
