Look at the interesting serrated sepals!

Ipomoea purpurea Prominent Secondary White Folds

The central area is not really this yellow; the color is an artifact caused by fluorescent lighting, I think. This strain has no name. I admire its dense pink color.

This plant is consistently making flowers of this unusual color pattern. I am hoping it continues to thrive as the outdoors growing season gets closer, so that I can get it outdoors for a better (more natural) growing environment.

There is nothing frail about this strain. It is making good growth and now the flower buds are being produced very nicely. I love its unusual split petals and vivid color.

Here is another delicate flower of this Japanese asagao / morning glory. I love the sky blue margin color that fades to purple-red to pure white. The leaves are wonderfully variegated.

I have to confess, I was deceived by the color yesterday...I had not seen the first flower until early afternoon and it faded from its original color of blue to the nice pink. It is nice to see how the color changes so elegantly.

Behold the first flower of this Japanese Asagao strain. The reference photo on the Kyushu University morning glory web site shows the parental strain having snow white flowers. I was most pleased with the pink color pattern in this plant's flower.
