Morning Glory Ipomoea Ruffled Red

A stunning variation to the usual morning glory flower, producing masses of small 1 inch brilliant red ruffled flowers with a white throat, absolutely stunning.  The vine twists and climbs, needing support to around 5 ft with dark green pointed leaves.  Less vigorous that some of its more thuggish cousins but ideal for a smaller trellis. Blooms continually July to September.  Sun or part shade.  Please note these are more temperature sensitive during germination that standard ipomoea’s and do need a warm sheltered spot to thrive.

Cultivation advice Morning Glory Ipomoea Ruffled Red

Days To Germination:  5-14
Planting Depth:  1/4 – 3/4 inch
Spacing, Plant: 6-8 inches
Light:  Full Sun

  • Soak seeds overnight in warm water for 24 hours before planting in early to mid spring under cover with warmth. Cover seed with 1/4 to 3/4 inch fine soil. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.
  • These can be planted directly outside after the soil has warmed in early summer
  • Thin to 6 to 8 inches when seedlings are 4 inches tall and acclimatise steadily outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.
  • These will require support to ramble.
    Do not over-water or fertilize. Plant in full sun in well drained somewhat poor soil.
  • This is a cultivated variety that does not spread or become invasive like its wild cousin and will die with the first frost.
