Description

Morning Glory - Grandpa Ott's (Heirloom) - Ipomoea purpurea

Annual - This free-blooming American heirloom has twining vines that quickly form a romantic leafy canopy. Grandpa Ott's velvety, intensely purple flowers are subtly accented with a wine-red star and make a vivid garden display. These seeds have been lovingly tended for years by Grandpa Ott's family and the Seed Savers Exchange. Very early to bloom, the vigorous vines blossom with glorious abandon throughout the season. The trumpet-shaped flowers always attract and satisfy many hungry hummingbirds.

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.
