Lovely large sky blue flowers. I hope it will make seeds but it appears it may not be too fertile.

Pink Japanese Morning Glory


Pink Japanese Morning Glory, originally uploaded by Gerris2.

Sold to me as "Shikanoko", also known as 'Kanoko', by an unscrupulous eBay vendor, I like it because of its very large flower and darker pink color with lighter color on the primary folds. It also has very large variegated leaves.
