3. Morning glory kvamoklit

Morning glory kvamoklit (Ipomoea Quamoclit), or lobed morning glory. This group of morning glories is united by unusual deeply dissected foliage. The most original representative is the plant found on sale under the name "Mina lobata".

At first glance, it is very difficult to believe that this vine is also a type of morning glory, and from afar it can be confused with ornamental beans. Its small flowers, collected in spike-shaped inflorescences 15-25 centimeters long, seem to be permanently closed. Plants are also often called the "Spanish flag" for their amazing multicolored coloration.

At the beginning of flowering, the flowers of the mine are red, and as they bloom, they turn orange, after which they gradually fade to creamy white through lemon yellow. Thus, flowers of different colors are combined in one brush. The height of the liana is from 1.5 to 3 meters, the dark green lobed leaves resemble the leaves of grapes or ivy.

Interesting varieties and hybrids of Ipomoea kvamoklit

Very unusual in shape leaves, reminiscent of the needle-like foliage of some exotic plant, has a fiery red morning glory kvamoklite (Ipomoea coccinea). The flowers of this morning glory are small, about two centimeters, but thanks to their bright red color, they look very expressive against the background of emerald green foliage and are very original.

For this feature, this morning glory received the second name "Ruby Lights", under which it can be found on sale. This powerful liana reaches 2.5 meters in height, but it looks airy and weightless, thanks to the delicate foliage.

The pinnate quamoclit (Ipomoea quamoclit pennata) is probably the most exotic species of morning glory in terms of foliage. Its leaf blade has a very deep dissection, resembling dill foliage. From a distance, obelisks entwined with this openwork vine can be misleading, since they can be mistaken for unusual conifers. For such a feature, pinnate quamoklite is also sometimes called "cypress liana".

Small flowers of morning glory (2-3 centimeters in diameter) look like small stars. As a rule, they are bright scarlet, but there are other colors with white and pink petals.

In hot summers, morning glory can reach 2.5 meters in height, but is usually lower. The stems of this vine are very delicate and thin, and the openwork leaf blade is also small in size. Such features of the plant should be taken into account when choosing a place for planting Ipomoea pinnate.

"Airy", "transparent" liana is completely unsuitable for creating a secluded atmosphere in a gazebo or covering a fence. Kvamoklit will look more harmonious on small obelisks, on a balcony or as an ampelous plant in balcony boxes or hanging baskets as part of container compositions.

Features of growing morning glory kvamoklit

Like all types of morning glory, kvamoklit is very thermophilic, in addition, the plant develops very slowly for the first three months, therefore it is recommended to grow liana exclusively in seedlings.

It is better to sow seeds in mid-early March, they can be soaked for several days beforehand. Ipomoea kvamoklit is very difficult to transplant, in this regard, it is recommended to sow the seeds in individual half-liter cups for several seeds, then extra shoots can be removed.

Kvamoklit loves spider mites, therefore, in seedling age, you need to regularly inspect the plants and, if necessary, carry out their processing.

Landing in the ground is carried out after the end of the period of return frosts - late May-early June. An open, sunny place is suitable for a vine, where it can be provided with regular watering.
