Heirloom Morning Glory

Grandpa Ott's

(Ipomoea purpurea)
This free-blooming American heirloom has twining vines with heart-shaped foliage that quickly forms 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. The vigorous, early-blooming vines blossom throughout the season, and the trumpet-shaped flowers always attract and satisfy hungry hummingbirds.
 

ANNUAL VINE

Summer/fall bloom
Frost tender

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow indoors 4 or 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2 inch deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. Transplant carefully only after nights stay above 50° (10°C) and before seedlings get too crowded.

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart; carefully avoid disturbing roots if transplanting.

GROWING NOTES

Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall at planting time; 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. Combine with climbing Moonlight nasturtiums or Purple Hyacinth beans for a striking show of iridescent beauty.
