Description

Morning Glory - Mailbox Mix - Ipomoea tricolor

Annual - This heritage blend combines flowers of deep, rich blue and pearly white that open fresh each morning. Although each individual bloom lasts only one day, new flowers unfurl continuously and buds continue opening over a week in a vase. Seeds like these were carried across the prairies by pioneer families, transplanting a bit fo home to far-flung homesteads. Traditionally, these old-fashioned climbing vines with heart shaped leaves and glowing blossom trumpets adorned fences or mailboxes. Grow beautiful living history!

Soil & Water: Plant in moderately fertile soil that drains well. Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall in a wind sheltered area; strong netting or a sturdy trellis serve well to hold these vigorous climbers. Morning glories will bloom hard in mid-summer once days begin to shorten.

Planting & Growing: To Start Indoors:In late spring, once weather is warm and settled and nights stay above 50°F, plant seeds in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 2 - 3" apart and 1/2" deep. Firm soil over seeds and keep evenly moist but not soggy while awaiting germination. To Start Early Indoors: Sow indoors 4 - 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2" deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outdoors. Transplant very carefully once night stay above 50°F and before seedlings get too crowded. Thin or Transplant: Space seedlings 6 - 8" apart; carefully avoid disturbing roots if transplanting.
