This free-blooming American heirloom has twining vines with heart-shaped foliage that quickly form a romantic leafy canopy. Grandpa Ott’s velvety, intensely purple flowers are subtly accented with a wine-red star and make a vivid garden display. These seeds have been lovingly tended for years by Grandpa Ott’s family and the Seed Savers Exchange. Very early to bloom, the vigorous vines blossom with glorious abandon throughout the season. The trumpet-shaped flowers always attract and satisfy hungry hummingbirds.

Summer/fall bloom

Frost tender

In late spring, only after nights stay above 50° (10°C). Plant seeds in a sunny spot in ordinary garden soil 2 to 3 inches apart and 1/2 inch deep. Firm soil over seeds and keep evenly moist but not soggy while awaiting germination.

Sow indoors 4 or 5 weeks before last expected frost in individual pots of seed starting mix. Cover 1/2 inch deep and keep warm and moist. Provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. Transplant carefully only after nights stay above 50° (10°C) and before seedlings get too crowded.

Space seedlings 6 to 8 inches apart; carefully avoid disturbing roots if transplanting.

Erect well-anchored supports at least 8 feet tall at planting time; strong netting or a sturdy trellis serve well to hold these vigorous climbers. Morning glories will bloom hard in mid-summer once days begin to shorten. Combine with climbing Moonlight nasturtiums or Purple Hyacinth beans for a striking show of iridescent beauty.
