description for "Morning Glory: Convolvulus tricolor 'Royal Ensign'"

Your garden will set full sail with the intensely colored, fluted 2-inch trumpets of this true bush morning glory. 'Royal Blue Ensign' grows easily and blooms hard to fill beds and borders with a profusion of incredibly vivid nautical blue flowers with contrasting white throats splashed with sunny yellow centers. The cheerful flowers with their crisp striking colors above mounding foliage provide a long summer season of pure pleasure in any sunny location. ‘Royal Blue Ensign’ morning glory’s low bush plant habit is convenient and versatile. Grow them in beds or borders, or showcase their glowing color in planters where the striking deep blue will set off the warm yellow and oranges of ‘Ladybird’ cosmos, dwarf marigolds, or zinnias. If plants get rangy in midsummer, trim them back halfway for another long flush of bloom. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
