Ipomoea tricolor ‘Blue Star’ | ‘Morning Glory’ | Seeds
‘Blue Star’ is a colourful variety of Ipomoea tricolor, or the ‘Morning Glory’; a twining annual of the Convolvulaceae family.
Requiring warm sun and rich, well-drained, soil, the plant’s white flowers and heart-shaped leaves brighten up any garden, particularly when trained as a climbing plant.
To improve germination rates, soak the seed for roughly twelve hours in warm water and then sow in individual pots in early spring. Germination usually occurs after between one to three weeks, if at 22°c. Ipomoea tricolor plants must be potted up immediately subsequent to germination, as they do not tolerate disturbance.
