Morning Glory Flying Saucers Ipomoea Tricolor is an annual free-flowering, fast growing flowering vine. Prior sowing Morning Glory Flying Saucers seeds can be nicked with a knife tip to brake a hard coat for improving and speeding up germination, and this Ipomoea Tricolor variety features lush, tropical-like foliage and blooms with huge, 5 inches in diameter, sky-blue to lavender-lilac with white streaks in a pinwheel pattern. The Morning Glory flowers open in the morning and close in the evening attracting various pollinators including bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
Morning Glory Flying Saucers looks fabulous falling from window boxes, hanging baskets and planters or climbing up trellises, walls, trees, arbors, fences or just any structure that can provide adequate support. Ipomoea Tricolor seeds are easy to germinate, but they must be soaked in warm water overnight before sowing, and the established Morning Glory Flying Saucers is a low maintenance plant that likes to grow in full sun tolerating partial shade and resisting drought.
