Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Ipomoea purpurea 'Carnevale Di Venezia'
Carnevale di Venezia Morning Glory, Purple Morning Glory
Native to Mexico, the purple morning glory is an annual vine beloved for its funnel-shaped flowers that open each morning. Selection 'Carnevale Di Venezia' bears white flowers with radiating violet-blue or rose-pink stripes.
This vigorous twining climber has hairy stems and medium green ovate leaves. On summer mornings it open buds to reveal its festively marked flowers. These flowers attract hummingbirds. Spherical, greenish-tan seedpods follow the flowers.
Ipomoea purpurea grows best in sheltered sites away from high winds. It requires full sun and warm, moist, fertile soil with good drainage. It's best grown on trellises, arbors or fences. Plants will gently self-seed if allowed to. Soaking seeds for 24 hours prior to planting hastens germination. Sown seeds also germinate better if the soil is exposed to natural daylight.
Ipomoea purpurea is a common agricultural weed. It is listed as invasive in many regions including parts of Australia, southern Africa, and Melanesia.
