Item #7203

LARGE PACKET

Annuals. We’ve taken the guesswork out of which morning glories to choose! Our blend of the best nostalgic favorites, and a stunning newcomer lets you have them all. Heavenly Blue with its large, sky blue flowers is the classic, reliable and vigorous heirloom from the 1920s. Pearly Gates is a white beauty that won the All-America Selections award in 1942. Flying Saucer appeared in 1960 with “out of this world” large, white blooms with radiating blue stripes. Grandpa Ott’s is a charming, old-fashioned Bavarian favorite from the 1930s that has flowers of royal purple stamped with ruby stars. Knowlian’s Black blossoms are a very deep purple accented with ruby stars. The modern Shiva is an irresistible pure white with a pastel pink star, elegant as a ballerina, and a true standout. Caution: Most parts of this plant are poisonous.
