Margined Blue Asago

Fukurin Blue JMG 4, originally uploaded by Gerris2.

It was a winter for me to grow margined Asagao vines. This blue beauty came from a commercial packet of seeds identified simply as Fukurin mix. It made 5 to 6 inch (13 to 15 centimeter) diameter flowers of sky blue color, with a lovely white margin. It has cicada type variegated leaves to add to the list of eye candy attributes.
