Ipomoea nil ‘Kikyo Snowflakes’ (Japanese Morning Glory) [8 Seeds]

Germination Information: I highly recommend carefully nicking the seeds and soaking them overnight before sowing to encourage good germination. Start the seeds indoors (1/4 to 1/2″ deep) in warm, bright conditions in mid-spring, or sow directly where you want them to grow after your last frost date. In my experience, this strain behaves differently from other Japanese morning glories (at least the others I grow): The seedlings look sturdy but then sit there for ages before deciding to finally start growing upward. Once the plants do start vining—several weeks or even a month or so after other JPMs—they do so with determination, with strong stems and substantial foliage. Also do tend to start flowering when young—even just 2 or 3 inches tall—with blooms that are larger than the plants at the time.

‘Kikyo Snowflakes’ is a gorgeous Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil) strain with pointed petals, giving the bloom a starry outline. The petals are a deep blue to purple-blue at first, sometimes taking on a magenta touch as they age. There is also a bright white edge that spokes down toward the bloom center. The exact colors and markings vary from bloom to bloom and day to day, depending on the weather conditions (sunny vs cloudy, cool vs hot).

You’ll grow this for the beautiful flowers, of course, but also appreciate its thick, deep green foliage. I’d say the vines reached about 8 feet long. I had mine on a 5-foot-tall section of fence, and when they reached the top, the vines cascaded back down, creating a dense, flower-filled screen. The deep purple seedpods are attractive too. Full sun. Annual.

2022-collected seeds are sold out. I hope to collect again in October 2023. At least 8 seeds. One packet per customer. Be aware that these seeds are open-pollinated, and I do grow other morning glories, so there is a possibility of some genetic variation. I do try to keep the various strains well separated, though, to minimize the chance of crossing, and so far, the strains have stayed true. Shipping to US addresses only (except Arkansas).
