Blue Picotee Morning Glory

 
Although Blue Picotee Morning Glories are not as deep of blue as it was advertised they still are a lovely bloom.

I have them growing in a large planter and winding along an old section of picket fencing.
When they first started growing I wondered what in the world was wrong with the leaves.
They are a lighter lime green in color but  look at how crinkly the leaves are.

Thinking there had to be something wrong with them I  planted some more seeds and they came up with the same crinkling in the leaves. So it must be a characteristic of this Morning Glory. It makes the vines look very strange. LOL!

Happy Gardening,

Those flowers are spectacular, their colour, braided trim on the edge, and the distinctive petal shape.
