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.
