Ao Muraski Zyouhanten shibori
I have also seen this written in different ways:
- Ao Muraski Jo hanten shibori
- Ao Muraski Jouhanten Shibori
JAPANESE MORNING GLORY SEEDS (Ipomoea purpurea), 12+ seeds per pack. These are annuals that will self-seed in most zones, or you can save seeds to replant in subsequent years.
These were garden grown and are naturally open pollinated, so there is a slight chance of cross pollination, but I've had good results with these coming true to the originals. I don't grow other morning glories near them, which greatly reduces the risk of cross-pollination.
These are medium-bloomed Japanese Morning glories with dark purple steaks and stripes on a white background - each flower is unique! You won't find these growing next door! A great addition to any morning glory garden with their unique flowers - each one is different and everyday during the summer brings a new show!
The name itself is basically a description of the flower:
Murasaki = Purple
Jou / Zyou = line, stripe or streak
Hanten = spot or speck
Shibori = tie dye, traditional way to make one of a kind patterns on cloth for Kimonos by tying thread and then dying the fabric.
