Morning Glory and Angelwing Jasmine

Morning Glory
Ipomoea tricolor
(ip-oh-MEE-uh) (TRY-kull-lur)

Angelwing Jasmine
Jasminum nitidum
(JAZ-mih-num) (NI-ti-dum)
Synonyms: Shining Jasmine, Confederate Jasmine, Star Jasmine

This is an interesting combination I came across on Maui last winter. It might be worth trying to duplicate here if I could just get my Jasmine to bloom again. It bloomed fine the first year it came from the nursery and it over wintered in the conservatory beautifully the last two winters but has failed to produce flowers during the summer. I will have to research why. To get things started I will toss a couple of Morning Glory seeds in the Jasmine pot and see what happens.

One reason I was going through some Hawaii pictures is my desperate need to get away for a few days. Hawaii is just too far to go to only stay 4 days although we have gone for 5 days before. I miss my sister and nephew but not enough to pack it up for that short of trip (sorry Heather and Gavin). We are going to look into going to either California or Puerto Rico for a long weekend. In the end price will probably determine our location.
