description for "Morning Glory: Ipomoea tricolor 'Early Call'"

‘Early Call’ morning glory has huge showy blossoms a full 4 to 5 inches across. The luminous flowers unfurl anew each morning to greet you in a watercolor wash of pink, magenta, pearly white, chocolate, lavender and sky-blue, many encircled with a dainty white edging. ‘Early Call’ blooms continuously from midsummer on, shining from captivating fleur-de-lis shaped leaves on strong climbing vines that twine easily up their supports. This beautiful flowing vine truly captures summer’s beauty. Ensure and hasten germination by roughing seeds with a file or soaking for 8 to 10 hours in tepid water before planting. Supply well-anchored vertical supports at least 6 feet tall at planting time to hold these vigorous climbers. Morning glory blossoms will open each morning beginning at midsummer as the days begin to shorten. Plants thrive in ordinary garden soil; avoid high nitrogen fertilizer that encourages excessive foliage but fewer flowers. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
