This picture was take the middle of October. See how bright blue it is!! I had an odd bloom now and then beginning in September.
I planted the Heavenly blue morning glory in May because I was afraid my Tuber Morning Glory had died in the harsh winter.
(don't know it's real name but the flowers are as big as Heavenly blue)
My Tuber Morning Glory. I love it as much as my Roses. I have had it for about 8 years and it comes back each summer and blooms proficiently from June to the middle of October. I have never seen it before or since I discovered it in a little nursery in the country - alas the nursery is gone.
This picture was taken today, November 1. See how the blooms now have changed color a bit. With stripes of purple?
And they are blooming Gangbusters!
My purple Tuber is done for the summer so it is perfect timing. But simply accidental on my part!
They are following the sun as it moves in the sky. AND they are in full bloom in the bright sun!! What kind of Morning Glory does that??
The vines are shading me in the late afternoon sun as I like to sit and sew in my garden.
I have come to love the blue ones!!
But, help me here!! I have never had a Morning Glory that did not close soon after the sun hit them. And do you think the Purple Tuber can be rubbing off on the "Heavenly Blue" that I planted from seed?
AND why did they just start blooming in the middle of September to go into full swing in October. I don't have the seed package now but I just picked it up at the store. Any answers??
