Product Description

Grow “Purple” Morning Glory from fresh flowering Ipomoea nil seeds. Purple Morning Glories will produce purple colored flowers with white throats. This Ipomoea plant will grow to a mature length of about 8 feet long. Since these are annual flowering plants, they will grow quickly, bloom profusely and die with the first killing frost.

Growing the Morning Glory vine is simple. Because it has a hard outer shell, nicking the seeds with a knife, or scratching them with sandpaper is recommended. After nicking the seeds, simply place them in warm water overnight to soften the hard outer shell. They can be sown the next day.

Morning Glories can be started indoors, in peat pots for easy transplanting later on. They can also be started directly in the area of your choice when the weather becomes warm. Temperatures should be at least 65F for the seedlings to thrive. Sow the seeds about 1/4” under topsoil. Provide at least 6 hours of sunlight each day, and a fair amount of moisture. Small sprouts should begin poking through the earth in roughly 10 to 20 days, sometimes even sooner.
