Kniola’s Purple Morning Glory - Organic


Kniola’s Purple Morning Glory - Organic

Ipomoea purpurea
(50 days) Glowing rich deep purple flowers vibrate against lush green foliage. Unlike most other morning glories, Kniola’s starts blooming while it is only 2' tall and still vining. As the vines climb on to 8–9', the blooms continue, lasting the entire season. The deep flowers have a magenta star that radiates out from their pale pink-white throats. An heirloom discovered by Mr. Kniola at an abandoned farm in Indiana. Nicholas Lindholm acquired seed from J.L. Hudson in 1993, thence passed it on to Roberta Bailey who has been maintaining it and culling out the magenta off-types.

~25 seeds/g.

Annual. Easily grown climber with trumpet-shaped flowers provides color and shade, decorates fence or post.

Culture: Plant with eastern exposure for best results. Nick the seeds with a file and soak overnight to speed germination. Germinates in 2 weeks at 75–80°. Sow outdoors after danger of frost or indoors in peat pots as they resent transplanting. Overly rich soil will yield excess foliage and sparse blooms.


All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.

Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
