Okinawa Morning Glory / 沖縄アサガオ

This is my new best friend, the Okinawa morning glory.


As the name indicates they only bloom in the morning and start to wilt by early afternoon.


This perennial climber has heart-shaped leaves and dreamy blue flowers, and would bloom throughout summer.


Doesn’t it look like the sun shining in the blue sky?


 Okinawa morning glory is a popular summer plant to grow in front of windows in Japan.  For it climbs and spread to form a “green curtain”, providing shade from the scorching sun, and decrease room temperature from sunlight.


My snail loves it too!  I have to keep a constant watch on it, or it will eat the plant up!
