Via Flickr:
A small asagao garden in USA. The plant on the left should make rose-chocolate colored stars on its flowers, and the one on the right will be a surprise (I don't know the color of the flower). We will all know soon.

Via Flickr:
When I visited Japan in 2009, I saw morning glory flowers being displayed in front of residents' homes as I strolled down the streets. This yellow leaf asagao plant is growing nicely and fits in well with the other plants in my garden in front of our townhouse.

Ipomoea nil Fujie's Red Speckles

Via Flickr:
The leaves are a total delight on this morning glory plant!

Via Flickr:
I just love the leaves of this asagao strain. Look how the lateral small lobes curl forward. The flowers should be red speckled beauties.

Here is the delicious looking flower of Rainbow Mist, a variety that also carries the name Nijikasumi given to it by my friend Emma Hill, who has made a series of crosses o produce this lovely plant.

Ipomoea nil Yamato-Noen Fujishibori

Via Flickr:
A young plant of 'Fujishibori'. Fujishibori is a purple speckled large flower morning glory. A photo of the flower from the seed packet shows this strain should be incredibly densely speckled. I can't wait to see the flowers!

Ipomoea nil Yamato-Noen Hanafubuki

Via Flickr:
A young plant of 'Hanafubuki'. The seed came from a packet distributed commercially by the Japanese seed company Yamato-Noen. The flowers should be bright red with white streaks of color (blizzard flower pattern).

Ipomoea nil Yellow Leaf Asagao

Via Flickr:
I am enjoying the fantastic display of the yellow variegated leaves of this morning glory. Soon the flowers will arrive, there are many buds. The parent was deep blue flowered, however, a sister plant to the one in the photo here was not blue flowered, but slate grey color. Suspense builds!

Via Flickr:
My plant is old, coming to the end of its life where it is putting its energies into seed making. As a result, few flowers appear on it now. This one was from this morning, a bit tattered from some rain.

Ipomoea platensis root

Via Flickr:
See the small fat root it has developed. I do not know the age of this plant. Last year it sulked and did not make any flowers. I infused biology into the soil this year and it has responded nicely with lush growth and numerous flower buds. Primarily I gave it compost tea with a small amount of worm castings dug into the soil somewhat near the caudex.

Look at the curled edge of this mutant asagao leaf. It seeds possible it could trap rain like a small bowl.
