Morning Glory - Picotee Blue
Ipomea nil ‘Picotee Blue’
Picote - from the French, meaning ‘marked with points’. As tribute to the origin of the work, this ruffled star-shaped cobalt blue bloom is edged with bright white surrounding a deep rose throat. Both double and single blooms can appear on the same vine. Each 3 inch flower opens in the early morning and lasts for only one day; to be replaced each morning by fresh blossoms.
Single blooms may appear more often during the hottest part of the summer. Flowering can decline as more seeds are produced. Deadheading spent blooms will keep vines free flowering all season.
