Ipomoea nil 'Nanten', 5 seeds
This is one of a few of those hard-to-find non-commercial Morning Glory from Japan that is easy to enjoy. It has beautiful, silky, lavender-colored blooms that are of an unusual extra-long, trumpet shape. That notwithstanding, its greatest asset is its exotic, bat-shaped leaves, contracted downwards at the side (look carefully at the first picture -- its leaf has no left and right lobes as per other Japanese Morning Glory), and ending in a 'point'. Though being a mutant, it is not finicky like the others. Cultivation is easy although you do need to ensure that spider mites do not gather beneath the downcurved foliage. For folks looking for an easy change from the large-flowered commercially available JMGs, this will be a good choice. 8 feet or more. Full sun for earliest bloom. Poor soil. Moderate water. Very rare exclusive seeds, harvested 05/2011.
