Does this MG have a name?

karyn1(7a)July 13, 2011

I had this pop up in the garden last year and found another today. I don't know if it's a variety I don't recall planting or if it's a cross with one of the hige varieties that I have had. The central portion opens a bit more but I took these pics very early in the day. Whatever it is I like it.

Karen it looks like something happened to the bloom on an aomoraski.

Where all the blooms on this vine the same?

All the blooms look like this. Same thing last year as well. I have a few different solid color hige type plants. Maybe one cross pollinated with a Blizzard or something?

I had some like that a few years ago from volunteers. I surmised that it was a result of Gypsy Bride crossing with "Emma's Gift", which was the only other purpurea in that area the previous year. None like that so far this year.
Very pretty!

Karyn - Emma was the 1st person I know to get those...

I can't link to the database but will paste some of the descriptive info here :

Ipomoea purpurea
Flaked Feathered Morning Glory 'Aomurasakihigesibori'
Additional info: (Split Petal Flaked, Flaked Hige)

I think "flaked hige" or "split petal flaked" are the most practical descriptors for those who aren't very comfortable with Romaji...

Hope that helps...

Thanks Ron. That name is certainly a mouthful! lol I don't remember planting anything with that name but honestly that doesn't mean anything. I'm not the greatest when it comes to labeling my plants.

On another subject, your recommendations worked. I have an open bloom on my MG tree this am and there's loads more buds that should be open soon!

I just found another plant that's putting out blooms with that odd fringe. This looks like a common I. purpurea until you look at the back.

Ron here's the first bloom that finally held on my MG tree.
