An exotic looking climber, with twining stem ideal for rambling over trellises, fences etc. The flowers are very impressive with up to 12 per flower spike producing a spectacular combination as they age. They start off a most powerful and stunning bright red and as they mature they go from red to orange, orange to yellow and from yellow to white and all are out at the same time.

Caution: toxic if eaten.
Soak overnight in cold water or file a tiny notch in the seed coat before sowing. Sow seed individually in pots in early spring at 21-24C (70-75F) 6mm (0.25in) deep in a good seed compost, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-16 days.

Grow on in cooler conditions, and transplant into 13cm (5in) pots. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, once the weather has warmed up. Plant 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny sheltered and warm site in rich, moist soil and provide them with something to climb.

A stalwart success 2017-04-02

I wasn't expecting as big an impact from this seed having had little success from the other ipomoeas. I sowed in Early May as recommended by Sarah Raven which is ideal as I have less clutter, having planted out my stalwart annuals by then. Started flowing in mid July and peaked around mid October; they looked stunning scrambling up my 7ft canna Australias and set my spring flowering rhodo ablaze into a seemingly completely different autumn flowering shrub. They did better planted in open ground as opposed to pots, they were lusher and had bigger flowers - up to 8" from the flower stem to the end bud. They persisted well into November and survived a few spells of below freezing temperatures although the leaves got burnt and more shriveled with each wave and the cold wind didn't help either. Definitely recommend, one I shall be buying every year
