A favorite with hummingbirds! White Cypress Vine (Ipomoea quamoclit) yields masses of star-shaped flowers with long, trumpet shaped throats. Plants are fast growing with lush, fern-like foliage that can reach up to 20-feet, if given support. Perfect for arbors, trellises and privacy screens. (Annual)
Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.
Planting and Growing Tips:
Native to Central and South America, these prolific bloomers flourish in areas with full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Direct sow outdoors 1/2 inch deep after the last frost of spring and keep moist while germinating. Seeds can be slightly chipped and soaked for better results. Thin seedlings 4- to 6-inches apart and provide support so plants can climb.
Common insect pests attacking plants include leafminer and aphids. Watch closely and apply organic pesticides, if necessary.
