The leaves of this strain of morning glory should be variegated. If you look closely at the cotyledons, you can see this trait, I think.

This variety is a very old line and is a Higo Asagao. It should make an off-white to cream flower and it appears it will have variegated leaves. The Higo varieties were reportedly grown by the Samurai in Edo Period.

Although this beautiful yellow flowering vine is not a native of Japan, I wanted to post the photo here to share the beauty with you. It is Ipomoea tuberculata, an annual vine that is truly breathtaking when you see its flowers in real life.
