The flowers are pretty but when we grew them a few years we found the flowers were tiny.

@gjones they’re so tiny! Was expecting them to be like the usual Morning Glory until I saw the size of the buds 😅 the foliage is so much nicer on these, I think 🌿

The foliage is very attractive and it grew to a nice height but when the flowers appeared, I felt disappointed as they were tiny. The flowers were pretty but I was hoping for something bigger.

@gjones I think I expected bigger too. And mine is growing through a climber with gigantic leaves so really not showing this one off very well 😜

@pelly I’m excited too 😁 even if it’s more because I have no idea if it’s the pink or red variety 😂

I love these. I've tried them a couple of times. They're very fragile at the seedling stage but excellent once they get going 👍

@jeatacake I’m so glad you said that! I got a fair few to sprout and only one made it to planting out stage 🙈 am just in love with the foliage 🌿

There are a few plants like that, with very fickle seedlings. This year it was cucumber seedlings that let me down. Only had 3 decent plants from them, but had about 6 cucumbers off them so far though. Making up for the failures! 😄🥒

@jeatacake cucumbers were your nemesis this year?? Good that they’re extra fruitful but a shame you didn’t end up with many plants 😞

I usually give some away with tomato plants, but it was just the tomatoes this year & the odd chilli plant.

@jeatacake did your tomatoes do well? Remember you had sooooo many last year 😋

I've not grown so many this year now I'm retired, as there's no work colleagues to give any to now. Just family & friends

@jeatacake I bet your old workplace missed you this summer! 🍅🍅🍅

I think they'll have managed OK without me, but missed out on some plants! I'm certainly getting a better crop off them this year 👍🍅
