Cypress Vine, tiny red morning glory, 20 seeds, Ipomoea quamoclit
Cypress Vine is a tiny red morning glory that blooms hundreds of star-shaped flowers all summer. Feathery blue-green foliage makes it extra showy. This dainty climber is very enthusiastic, climbs 20' if supported and will cover a fence in a season. The flowers stay open all day and hummingbirds love them.
Super easy to grow, it loves full sun with light afternoon shade and does best in crummy soil. It will reseed generously every season and come back every spring. Soak the seeds for a few days before planting. They'll germinate in 10-15 days. This is a great plant for beginning gardeners.
Soak seeds in warm water overnight, sow no more than 1/4 inch deep. Cover with plastic wrap and a rubber band to keep in heat and moisture. Place in a warm, sunny spot, keeping soil consistently moist, but not soaking wet.
