Morning Glory Ipomoea Quamoclit Red Feather

An unusual ipomoea variety producing stems and foliage that give the appearance of fine feathers and can reach 20ft in ideal conditions. The stunning slender-tubed starry scarlet red flowers about 1.5in long flowers are produced in abundance.   Unlike the aggressive standard Morning glory varieties this is more delicate and tender and benefits from shelter to thrive, although the flowers last much longer.
