Beautiful Ipomoea

Most All plants are interesting; many are very useful (these are the ones I’m mainly interested in), and many are beautiful (those are the ones most poeple are interested in) and some are simply stunning.

Two that belong to the latter group are Ipomoea tricolor and Ipomoea purpurea. In fact there are quite a few really beautiful Ipomoea species. Even the sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) has a not too bad looking flower 😉

But look for yourself:
(A note to all of you interested in the exact variety: will look these up and add later.)

After this superficial “cosmetic” blog post, the next one will treat an ugly, but terribly useful old tuber 😉
