Morning Glories: Flying Saucers

Ipomoea tricolor “Flying Saucers”

Usually morning glory flowers have 5 petals (well, all the petals are fused together so… petal sections?):


But this one flower had four petals instead. Even the other flowers on the same vine didn’t do this.


Flying Saucers is one of the prettiest morning glory varieties out there. But they also get sick and die really easily.


As the flowers fade and close, the blue turns pink or magenta.


The pink color can be even more striking than the blue from when the flowers were fresh.
