Flower, Morning Glory: Grandpa Ott's
CERTIFIED ORGANIC SEED, 1 packet (50 seeds)
(Ipomoea purpurea) The classic morning glory! Vines are extremely vigorous, growing up to 15 feet, and are literally covered with dark purple-blue flowers up to 3" across, with a red star at the throat. This Bavarian heirloom is easy to grow and will self-seed, even in cold climates.
Morning glory seeds are protected by a tough coat. To ensure good germination, soak the seeds in water for 12 to 24 hours before sowing. Sow seed 1/4 inch deep, 8-10 inches apart; seedlings emerge in 7-10 days. Seed can also be fall planted; scatter dry seed when it is too cold to germinate and soil temperatures are below 45 degrees F; the seed will lay dormant through the winter.
