Spanish Flag (Ipomoea lobata)


Spanish Flag  (Ipomoea lobata) (Ipomoea lobata (Spanish flag))

I grew some of these a couple of years ago, saved seed and sent some to two GoY members. Disappointed to find none of them germinated so am happy to see these have grown from a new pack of seed.

I have to say, I've never managed to get them to germinate but my Ipomoea 'Grandpa Ott' has overwintered! Love this!

Looks so vivid against that lovely blue sky, Shirley.

Anget, I had no idea Morning Glory had such a grand name!

Kate, I have had to move this, in a large pot, as the blustery wind kept pushing it over. It's now snuggled up amongst all the other pots ... :o)

I love this I use to grow them up the runner bean poles if I couldn't find a space for them ...

Dotty, the foliage isn't much to shout about but the blooms are gorgeous.

Lovely! I grew it myself quite a few years ago but then it was called Mina lobata. I didn't manage to grow again from saved seeds either so I might try a new pkt too.

It was Mina Lobata when we grew it Thorney.....

It certainly was when I bought my first pack of seed ... annoying how names are changed ... :o(
