Morning Glory Japanese Blue Picotee Ipomoea Nil is the Japanese cultivated variety of Morning Glory vine. Morning Glory Blue Picotee seeds can be started directly outdoors in spring after last frost, and Ipomoea Nil Blue Picotee blooms with big, 5 inches in diameter, star-shaped, dark-blue flowers that are edged with bright white surrounding and have a white or deep rose throat.
Morning Glory Japanese Blue Picotee vine just needs a structure to climb, and at no time the plant will provide a vertical accent for any landscape. Ipomoea Nil Blue Picotee seeds should be soaked in water overnight prior sowing in order to boost germination, and once established this extremely popular climbing annual plant will bloom early, so masses of attractive funnel shaped flowers will provide a stunning display of exotic color all summer long.
