(Packet of 100 Seeds)
Bring a delicate beauty to your summer morning when you grow Shiva Morning Glories. Commonly seen decorating fences, railings, and trellises, the Shiva Morning Glory flowering vine will rapidly climb nearly any available surface. Its blooms only last for one day, with its peak being early in the morning before the sun reaches a high point in the sky. However, it grows so quickly and is such a prolific bloomer that each day will bring new flowers to enjoy.
About the Shiva Morning Glory
While its scientific name is the Ipomoea Purpurea, this lovely variety of Morning Glory is simply known as the Shiva Morning Glory. This perennial cultivar blooms in shades of snow white to palest pink, with slightly darker pastel pink lines forming a star shape on the single, round petal. Each pale, delicate blossom is between 2 and 3 inches wide at its peak. The flowers are trumpet-shaped as they open, giving a wide, bright appearance in the early morning before they close again as the day grows warmer.
This heirloom flowering vine grows rapidly along fences, railings, trellis, and exterior walls, and it reaches a length between 7 and 13 feet long. The spade-shaped leaves are a vivid green, providing a lovely backdrop for the delicate white and pink flowers.
