Ipomoea purpurea and tricolor
This blend of the best nostalgic favorites, and a stunning, new, starred variety lets you have them all. ‘Heavenly Blue’ with its large, sky-blue flowers is the classic, reliable, and vigorous heirloom from the 1800s. ‘Pearly Gates’ is a white beauty that won the All-America Selections award in 1942. ‘Flying Saucer’ appeared in 1960 with large, white blooms with radiating blue stripes. ‘Grandpa Ott’s’ is a charming, old-fashioned Bavarian favorite that has flowers of royal purple stamped with ruby stars. ‘Knowlian’s Black’ blossoms are a very deep purple accented with ruby stars. The modern ‘Shiva’ is white with a pastel pink star. Perennial in USDA zones 10 and warmer. Vines grow up to 8′-15′ long and produce flowers that bloom from summer to frost. Prefers full sun exposure.
Caution: Most parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
