Asagao 'Ginro' (Ipomoea nil)

I am most honored to grow out a strain of Japanese Asagao 'Ginro'. I started seeds of this strain on 20 April 2009, and have nice cotyledon photos to share with you. Thanks to Nobu Kato ( for making it possible for me to see this fabulous plant in real life!

I find most enchanting the yellow color with the red veins and edge to the cotyledons.

Ginro Asagao is developing some interesting leaves. With the onset of consistently warm evenings the plants have suddenly come alive!
