Morning Glories are an annual vine with ovate,
deeply cordate leaves 3-4 inches long and 3/4-3 inches
wide. The trumpet-shaped Morning Glory flowers vary
from white to red, purple, blue, or violet-blue. The
ovoid fruit is about 1/2 inch in length and bears elongate,
angular black seeds.
Morning Glories ranged originally from mexico
through tropical South America. If we are to judge from
many ancient writers, morning glory seeds must have
been very extensively used in the valleys of Mexico
in pre-Hispanic times. It seems to have been more important
in divinity than peyotl (Peyote) or teonanácatl (cubensis
Generations of Aztecs used the Morning Glory
seeds to communicate with the Sun Gods and as a ritual
hallucinogen. Natives in Mexico (Oaxaca region) believe
that the deity lives within the seeds. In times of trouble
they would eat the Morning Glory seed to gain knowledge
from the deity.
Today, the "Heavenly
Blues" Ipomoea tricolor are probably the most widely
sought of the Morning Glory. They are grown as a climbing
vine, beautiful and popular are their clear and pure
blue flowers with yellow throats. Organically grown
and harvested , untreated seeds.
The "Pearly Gates"
are a vigorous and showy climber, producing masses of
pure white flowers with a yellowish shading in the throat.
The "Flying Saucers"
are a beautiful addition to any Morning Glory Collection.
