Ipomoea nil RWB 2nd collection plant number 1 - 2

Via Flickr:
From the breeding program of Emma Hill comes this F2 growout of the a series I have called RWB (for Red, White and Blue - colors that predominate in the flowers). The parent plant's flowers looked spectacular as can be seen in this photo:

Ipomoea nil

This plant is number 1 and is from the second seed collection. It actually came from the same packet as the turquoise asagao shown immediately below. Don't you love biological variation? Obviously this genetic line is in development and is not a stable variety. I do love the incredible variations in flower color and patterns - thank you, Emma!
