Ipomoea Purpurea Pink Star Rambler Morning Glory Seeds
Packet of 50+ organically grown seeds!
When I originally got these seeds I was told they were a pink form of Rivea corymbosa, and that they were sourced in Israel.
They were also said to be used for divination purposes the same way ololiúqui~ololiuhqui~ololiuqui was used by Aztec~Mexican shamans.
While it does look visually similar, this is not Rivea/Turbina species at all and I can not, and do not in any way recommend use of the plant for anything at all, but looking at.
This is a pretty ornamental species only, and to that end it’s great.
It is the domesticated form of Ipomoea purpurea with tan brown seeds, not the black I was more used to seeing.
Because I have tracked down the name after the fact, I am not 100% which exact named variety of Ipomoea purpurea it is.
I am pretty certain it is either Pink Rambler or Pink Star, but it could just as easily be one of the hundreds of others.
Lovely pale pink with a distinctive star centre, and a heart shaped leaf.
I can tell you it looks cool, the native bees smash it, and the plants produce an endless stream of pink flowers on a tighter more compact plant than the wilder less domesticated forms.
I like it, it’s definitely a keeper, and I am excited to have it in the collection!
