Morning glory

MeissenMeissen Posts: 1

I have been growing morning glories for a long time. This year I saw one that was much larger (2 -3 times) than the rest. Is it a mutation? It hasn't produced a flower yet but is growing at a extremely fast rate.

    Hi Meissen...mine grew at an incredible rate last year.

    They started out like this when I planted them

    and turned into these in no time at all, the growth each day was quite astonishing

    Got the seeds - but only the miserable dark ones (Kniola's Black). sowed a couple this morning , but going to  try and get a cheap packet of the lovely pale blue common ones tomorrow.

    thanks Philippa

    Oh sheps they were so beautiful bet they were stunning in flower. Can I ask how many you put in each pot to get such thick foliage?

    Ey up, PP...I've got the brush in one hand, a dustpan in the other...so you can guess where the broom is image  sweep, sweep...sweep image

    Hi Jacquim...just one plant per pot and fed them once a week with tomato food. I'm not too sure which species they were, one had really big pale blue flowers about 4 inch in diameter and the other was a darker blue flower with a radiating purple center and about 2 inch in diameter.
