Grandpa Ott's Morning Glory
These beautiful climbing vines drip with purple flowers, each with a "red star in its throat." Grandpa Ott's is a vigorous varietal believed to come originally from Bavaria. Blossoms throughout the season and is well-loved by hummingbirds. Will climb supports up to 8 feet tall. These morning glories love to twist and climb! Together with the Russian Mammoth Sunflowers they make a wonderful flower house. They can also scramble together with the Scarlet Runner Beans to make a teepee. These vines aren’t heavy like some climbers so they don’t need a super strong support-- some strong garden twine will suffice.
Plant in a sunny spot 2 to 3 inches apart and 1 inch deep. Keep the soil moist but not soggy while you wait for the vines to sprout.
*Parts of the morning glory are toxic when ingested -- don't eat it!*
