Japanese morning glory (Ipomoea nil ‘Kikyo Snowflakes’) 日本朝顏’桔梗雪花’
It is beautiful! 🙂 I am growing 2 plants, they were from original 3 seeds, one seedling died 😦 these are for my gardening friend C.J. It has beautiful flowers with between ‘balloonflower’ and ‘snowflake’ shape, hence the variety name ‘Kikyo Snowflakes’. Fairly easy to grow as all other morning glory. Although only 5seeds for one seed portion from eBay is very expansive I will say… Just to compare with all the rare seeds packets I have purchased and heard of in the past so many years. It did make me so nervous when one seedling died at beginning. Now the plants are settled and starting to cling on clear netting and flower! Best in full sun for best result, even though they are also fine in partial shade. Propagate by seeds or cuttings. Annual flowering vine, not cold hardy. All parts of plant are toxic if ingested.
我種了2棵是從原本3顆種子孵出的,1棵小苗掛掉了 😦 這些是幫花友C.J.種植繁殖的日本朝顏. 花形與色正如其名’桔梗雪花’. 基本上跟其他朝顏一樣蠻好種的. 不過eBay上賣一份種子只有5顆種子真是太貴了… 多年來自己也購買過不少少見的植物種子包或聽說過別人的購買經驗也不曾數量這麼少過. 較弱的小苗死掉時真讓我捏把冷汗緊張了一陣子,深怕辜負了花友的期望. 還好現在2株都健康也開始攀爬到網架上同時也開始開花了! 我覺得還是全日照為佳,雖然半日照也能種,不過花量會明顯不如全日照. 一年生的草花爬藤,不耐寒. 全株有毒勿食.
