'Wabi-Sabi' asagao, marketed as Windmill Chocolate.

The Youjiro asagao varieties, Chachamaru pictured here (also known as Wabi-Sabi) and Yaguruma, were the first to flower up from seeds I started in the spring. I believe this variety of flower symbolizes the Japanese morning glory; they were among the first I ever grew, to include Maisugata as well.
