Morning glory question

This is my first year growing some of the fancy morning glories like Tie Dye and Mt. Fuji and Rose Silk. Does anyone here know if they will come true from the seeds they produce or if I'll get some nice surprises next year?

RE: Morning glory question

While catalogs are notoriously inexact in assigning a species or hybrid name to various ipomoea cultivars (such as these), the consensus appears to be that they are all Ximperialis or at least in the same subgenus and section of ipomoea. So, crosses should be possible. There will likely be some variation even with the selfings, and even more if cross hybridization occurs.

RE: Morning glory question

I believe the three varieties you mentioned are stable inbreds and will breed true if selfed. If allowed to cross...surprise!

RE: Morning glory question

I had them growing all together along a fence and saved some seeds from them. I can't wait to see what kind of variations I get!

RE: Morning glory question

What happened with them? How did they turn out?
