Detailed Product Info

This rare heirloom variety has been stewarded by one of our seed growers, Roberta Bailey of Seven Tree Farm, since the early nineties. Unlike other morning glories, Kniola's starts flowering soon, when vines are only 2 feet in length, and grows to 6-9 feet in length over the season. Foliage is deep green and smaller too, the leaves only reach 2-3 inches in length. Deep purple flowers reveal a magenta star on the interior when they open. A very attractive, easy to grow variety! Our's self sows in Ken's garden year after year, but never seems weedy.

Growing Instructions

Direct sow outdoors after all danger of frost has passed, or start indoors 2-3 weeks early. If transplanting, take care not to disturb the roots. Seeds take 5-14 days to germinate. To hasten, nick the seeds and soak in water for 24 hours, then sow. Plant near a fence or wall, or provide a trellis. Morning glories will grow to 6-10' in height. Plant in full sun or partial shade. Will self-sow.
