Morning glory, Ipomoea, is a beautiful hardy annual climber native the rainforests of South America. Violet-purple, trumpet-shaped blooms contrast with rich green foliage in summer. Morning glory is easy to raise from seed and grows quickly, making it perfect for growing up obelisks, growing through shrubs and trees, and filling gaps while perennial climbers become established. The flowers open wide in the early morning sun but are short-lived and will not last into the afternoon.
Ipomoea purpurea 'Grandpa Ott' is an heirloom variety hailing from Bavaria. Its flowers are an intense violet-blue, with a pinkish throat and star-shaped veining, up to 7cm across.
