Is Ipomea grandiflora the blue morning glory?
A couple of weeks ago, I was at my trusted nursery (Montreal, Canada) shopping for a blue flowered morning glory.
The lady sold me something under the name of Ipomea grandiflora, which barely resembles a morning glory vine.
She went on great lengths telling me that this plant was much better than the ones propagated by seed. She said, cuttings make for a stronger, healthier plant, with "giant" blue flowers.
Well I haven't seen a single flower yet :(
The leaves are coarse, thick and dark green & they are not heart shaped.
The stems are hairy.
It has none of the daintiness and grace of the morning glory vines.
I searched the web and found contradictory information about the name.
I wonder if anyone has grown this vine and can give me some information about it.
