Morning Glory Shiva Ipomoea Purpurea is one of the most adorable varieties of Morning Glory vine. It is recommended to soak Morning Glory Shiva seeds overnight in warm water and sow them the following day for best germination. Ipomoea Purpurea Shiva blooms with masses of stunning, trumpet-shaped, white flowers with a rose star and grows very fast providing outstanding coverage at no time. The bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love to visit Morning Glory flowers.
Morning Glory Shiva is one of the best flowers to decorate fences, trellis, arches, and walls, and other garden uses include containers, large pots, hanging baskets and mass planting as an annual ground cover. It is much easier to germinate Ipomoea Purpurea seeds if their hard coat is nicked with a knife tip prior sowing. The established Morning Glory Shiva likes to grow in full sun and preferring average to poor, evenly moist, well drained soil, but the plant tolerates partial shade and less preferable soil conditions.
