What are the pros? Flower
What are the cons? No Fragrance
this little guy grew a good amount in a small basket on my balcony.
My buildings reflective so it got a lot of sun and did not burn as long as you kept it watered. This variety does not smell fragrant however its blooms are out of this world. Only down side I'd say is it does not produce as many blooms per flower segment as other varieties. I've found others have as many as 4-6 bloom stocks per segment. This one has 1 sometimes 2. dying flowers are still colorful, not a lot of drop leaf foliage on the lower end of the plant when it grows taller like other morning glory's
Pest and disease resident in my region. Grows well in baskets, best in large pots or the ground. Not drought tolerant needs standard watering.
Better variety for baskets would be "IPOMOEA NIL X IMPERIALIS" common names are "Cameo Elegannce | Imperial Japanese Morning Glory | Mini-Bar rose" I've regrown from seed last few years true to form, but don't know if it is classified as a heirloom.
