Ipomoea Tricolor Vine 30 Seeds, Mexican Morning Glory Climber, Ground Cover

The Plant Attraction


Ipomoea tricolor
Also known as: Mexican Morning Glory, Grannyvines

Here is a easy to grow garden favorite. It is perfect to hide an unforgiving fence, climb a wall or scramble through arbors or trellises. Also often used as a ground cover or in hanging baskets. It is a herbaceous twining liana rapidly growing to 7–13 ft tall. The heart shaped leaves are spirally arranged, 1–3" long with a 1⁄2–2 1⁄2" long petiole. The flowers are trumpet-shaped, 2–4" in diameter, most commonly vibrant blue with a white to golden yellow center. It has an extended blooming period from summer to fall, attracts hummingbirds and butterflies, and is deer resistant.

It prefers well-draining, sandy or loamy soils, in a sheltered, sunny position such as a south or west facing wall. It does not tolerate temperatures below 5 °C (41 °F), and so in temperate regions is usually grown as an annual. In warmer regions it is a self seeding perennial.
**Seeds can be toxic to humans and animals if ingested in large quantities. They contain hallucinogenic alkaloids that can cause gastrointestinal upset, agitation, tremors, disorientation, ataxia, loss of appetite, and diarrhea. The leaves and stems typically only cause vomiting.

This offer is for 30 seeds.
