Here is another beautiful asagao from Japan, compliments of the seed dispersal program of Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan. I began growing this vine in early winter, and it slowly made a vine on the small wire circular trellis I offered it. I enjoyed seeing its variegated leaves through the winter months, and just yesterday I was rewarded with a series of quite nice red speckled flowers. The flower on this indoors-winter-grown vine is nearly 4 inches in diameter. Each flower is different in its speckling patterns and I will photograph each one and post it here in the blog. Enjoy.
