Star of Yelta Morning Glory
Ipomoea spp. The most popular morning glory on our trial trellis! Large flower buds open during the day to reveal silky 2½ inch blooms. Flowers last longer than most varieties. Deep blue with contrasting purple stars and pink eyes. Flowers from June to frost. Reaches a height of about 80 inches. Approximately 40 seeds/pkg.
May be started inside in peat pots, 3-4 weeks before last frost. Usually direct seeded 2 weeks after last frost. Chip seeds, soak for 24 hours and cover with 1⁄4-1⁄2 inches of soil. Requires a soil warmth of 21-26 degrees C. Space 12-18 inches apart or closer since these plants do not mind being crowded.
Plant in a sunny location and do not fertilize.
