Morning Glory 'Blue Star' has large, powder-blue flowers. The trumpet-shaped flowers open up to 5" wide. My friend Lynn describes it as "pale and soothing, almost ghostly or otherworldly, depending on how the light hits it."
Ipomoea tricolor 'Blue Star' is an heirloom morning glory. It was introduced in 1949. It is a sport of Ipomoea tricolor 'Heavenly Blue'. The flowers are known for staying open longer than other morning glories.
