Morning Glory Heavenly Blue Ipomoea Tricolor is a tender perennial vine native to tropical areas of Mexico, Central and South America. Morning Glory Heavenly Blue seeds germinate fast, and they can be started indoors in containers. Also commonly called Grannyvine, Ipomoea Tricolor features large, heart shaped, bright green leaves and produces showy, trumpet-shaped heavenly blue flowers blooming through summer and fall attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Morning Glory flowers are prolific and downright gorgeous, and the vine is immensely versatile as an ornamental plant.
Morning Glory Heavenly Blue is usually grown as an annual vine, and in warm to hot weather, a young plant or seedling can grow very fast and cover an arbor, fence, trellis or other vertical support in record time. Morning Glory Heavenly Blue is ideal for covering an unsightly fence or creating seasonal screening as a living wall. In order to achieve the fast germination, Ipomoea Tricolor seeds can be soaked in warm water overnight prior sowing, and Morning Glory is excellent re-seeder - if you plant it once you may never have to plant it again. Ease of cultivation and speed of growth provide quick gratification to the impatient gardener, and for this reason, morning glories are recommended for a child's gardening project.
