Ipomoea nil

This Japanese-developed morning glory is a yellow leaf type. Having less chlorophyll makes seedling less robust. I have germinated many seeds before this one and they have all died. The nice first true leaf on this plant makes me think it will survive to make a nice plant. The flower of the parent was large, billowy and deep blue.
