Morning glory is a classical favorite for gardeners. This easy-to-grow flowering vine produces captivating, trumpet-shaped, flowers. Grandpa Ott’s morning glory is an heirloom variety of ipomoea purpurea with deep purple flowers that have a dark red to dark purple star in the center. Also known as Purple Morning Glory, these glowing purple saucers are attractive to hummingbirds. Combine these with our other varieties such as Heavenly Blue morning glory and Flying Saucers for an assorted presentation of celestial blooms. Climbing as high as 12 feet, this abundant bloomer is perfect for decorating mailboxes, fences, trellis and handrails. Individual blooms are generally about 2 1/2 “, opening in the day and closing up as the sun starts to set. Purple morning glory seems to be a better reseeder and is more cold hardy than Heavenly Blue (Ipomoea Tricolor). The plants produce numerous seed pods each containing four to six seeds, which should easily allow the plant to reseed itself for the following season. The seeds of ipomoea purpurea, like those of ipomoea tricolor, reportedly also have a historical significance in that they were used by Native Americans, most notably the Aztecs, who called the plant “tlitliltzin,” for divination.
