Ipomoea nil 'Purple Tides', 10 seeds
'Blue Suede Shoes' is a blue with white picotee mutation form of the totally blue, vigorous-blooming 'Hatsu Arashi' (First Autumn Storm) Japanese Morning Glory. In its second year, the children plants had returned mostly true in colors with the exception of one particular plant, which is purple rather than blue, as shown in one of these pictures. Here are the offsprings of that exception plant, showing yet more variations and all interesting. Some blooms are solid purple with white partial picotee, some blooms have white strips, and some blooms are faded purple with irregular dark purple central stars. We are temporarily calling this Purple Tides, name might change depending on whether it comes back true or not next year. Green, tri-lobed as per its parents and grandparents. 8 feet or more. Full sun for earliest bloom. Poor soil. Moderate water. Fresh, exclusive seeds, harvested 10/2015. Open-pollinated.
