Ipomoea purpurea 'Heavenly Blue' is one of the morning glory kinds that is among the most desired after. Its buds are lengthy and tightly furled, but when the morning sunlight hits them, they gradually unfurl themselves into gigantic sky-blue trumpets with clear white and yellow throats. Each blossom only lasts for one day, yet new ones appear in rapid succession after it.
Although though it is technically a perennial plant, Ipomoea purpurea 'Heavenly Blue' is most successfully grown as an annual. It is simple to cultivate and can be planted directly where the flowers are to be produced, preferably in soil that is rich in moisture but has good drainage and is exposed to direct sunlight.
Seed Quantity 75 Seeds
Type Perennial grown as Annual
Genus Ipomoea tricolor

Mel supplies the highest quality seed and I always get such great results. But what completes it - and keeps me coming back - is her enthusiasm and engagement with soooooo many of her customers and insta following. She genuinely cares, and is a fount of knowledge. She is a creator of the best kind - her products reflect that 💛
Wow what an absolute delight this company is. Their customer service is superb - they kindly arranged for me to order this box and hold back delivery until we knew the actual moving in date. And it arrived not only on time but full of love with beautiful planet friendly packaging. How many gifts can be buy where there is joy in the purchasing, the receiving AND in the anticipation for when the flowers actually appear.
I'm so thrilled I'm purchasing for myself. :-)
Beautifully presented!! Good number of seeds per packet and a lovely selection of flowers !
It was estimated to arrive, a bit too late , as we were going away and wanted to give it to my sister in law, before we went.. a quick E mail to the seller, and it was dispatched immediately and arrived in time… excellent!!
I'm obsessed with bishybarnabeescottagegarden seeds, it's like being a kid in a candy store , I love varieties of the flower selection, I always order the seed boxes because they are great value for money and there's always a cute surprise every time I open the box , love the presentation and iv planted so many seed this month so impatiently waiting for next spring 🤭
From ordering, receiving my gorgeously wrapped box, opening to reveal copper coloured shiny tins with beautiful labels. To smelling the fantastic fragrance, I was overwhelmed with the seamless flow of this purchase. Highly recommended and I’ll definitely try out more flavours.
Ordered these as I saw one growing wild in my garden and thought was lovely. Seeds arrived very promptly, part of a small batch of various seeds, along with a free gift which was very much appreciated. Will certainly buy again and am looking forward to seeing the plants next year.
Seeds sown directly outdoors last summer, all germinated and formed lovely silvery rosettes, and half have now also thrown up flower stalks and are producing stunning vivid pink flowers. I’m hopeful that the other half may do the same next summer. Great seeds, well packaged, excellent instructions - many thanks!
I've never grown Hesperis (sweet rocket) until this year, but Melanie's seeds were so successful and prolific, that I now have beautiful flowers wafting their amazing aroma around my garden...plus our honey bees are so happy 🐝 In fact lots of pollinators are visiting!
