Morning glory knowlians black:  These flowers are not quite black, but very deep, velvety purple.  Knowlians black morning glory is a slightly slower grower than other morning glory varieties,  therefore  you will be rewarded for your patience. The reward being a bounty of large, richly coloured flowers throughout the summer.

These beautiful flowers are easy to grow.  Sow the seeds directly outdoors where you intend them to climb.  Soak the seeds in water over-night.   After sowing, cover with a light dusting of soil.
Due to this, keep moist during the 10 day germination period.

Since these vines require some sort of support,  you may use a trellis, a fence,  poles,  porch frame,  or any structure that will let the vines twist around.

Sowing time is spring and summer.  Germination temperature 20 ~ 25 degrees.

This common vine flowers in summer and autumn.  It is suitable for a small garden and bedroom window shade.  Also around small trellises,  fences and  landscaping.  It is suitable for pot-cultured ornamental furnishings,  garden balconies and potted plants.

For indoor pots,  lightly file one end of each seed or soak for 2 hours in tepid water before sowing.  Sow into pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a 1/4in layer of compost or vermiculite.

Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep seeds at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F).
After sowing,  do not exclude light as this helps germination.  Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged.  Germination will usually take 7-30 days.

Morning glory vines come in many colours and varieties.  Morning glories are annual climbers with slender stems, heart-shaped leaves,  and trumpet-shaped flowers in pink,  purple-blue,  magenta, or white.  They have a beautiful shape before they unfold in the sun,  with romantic tendrils that lend old-fashioned charm.

In warmer areas,  train climbers over a pergola or arch, or use as dense groundcover.  The vine grows quickly up to 15 feet in one season,  and can self-seed fairly easily, too.

The flowers bloom from early summer to the first frost.  Their big, fragrant, colourful flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Note that the seeds are highly toxic if ingested.

Enjoy  having this vine in a corner indoors , or on your patio,  for a beautiful colourful display.
