I present photos of the first flowers of this Japanese morning glory. Please note the fine striations of color on the flower limb. The combination of red-maroon with yellow leaf is especially nice. I love seeing all this color in the middle of winter - at present time it is 19 degrees F / -7 degrees C outside!
