Ipomoea indica, 5 seeds
This perennial morning glory is often confused with the Heavenly Blue morning glory. Indeed, both of them bears large, gorgeoulsy blue flowers that stay open the whole day. However, while the Heavenly Blue has a yellow throat, Ocean Blue has white. Ipomoea indica's blooms also take on a pinkish-purple tone as they age. Another thing that set them apart is that the Blue Dawn Flower doesn't readily form seed pods, preferring to flowering its head off creating a beautiful and dramatic display non-stop from late spring onwards. Hence this plant is more readily available in plants/cuttings forms rather than as seeds. I am surprised to find seed pods this year, so here they are for you. Tri-lobed and heart-shaped leaves. On ebay, this is also sometimes confused with a round-flowered, blue colored version of Ipomoea purpurea which readily set seeds. Hardy from zone 9 upwards. 20 feet tall. Full sun to part shade. Poor soil. Hard-to-find, fresh seeds, harvested 10/2017.
