IPOMOEA TRICOLOR 'WEDDING BELLS'
This extremely rare and quite fantastic Morning Glory is reported to have been recently saved from near extinction and so we are keen to encourage its resurrection. Gorgeous, impressively large lavender blooms shine out making a stunning display, but why not consider enhancing it further by growing it in combination with another climber, or a rambling rose. Prefers rich soil and prefers to keep its feet in the shade.
Sow seeds, covering them thinly, preferably in spring but can be at any time, in good light, at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Prick out small seedlings into 3 inch/8cm pots containing a John Innes, loam-based compost. Grow on before planting into a large container or sheltered spot outdoors, with climbing support, and be sure to protect them from freezing in winter.
