Ipomoea purpurea. 45 days. Extra early, heirloom morning glory. Flowers are purple with a dark maroon star and white throat. They resemble Grandpa Ott's but bloom so much earlier. Vines reach a height of 2-2.5 m. and bloom until frost. Quite a show stopper— grow through spring-flowering shrubs, on a tall trellis, or let it scramble over something unsightly. Will re-seed. Soak seeds overnight, cover lightly, place in light, germinate warm.
