The best double-flowered Morning Glory we have ever seen, Split Second is a big, full, Peony-like bloom of rosy pink that looks nothing like its single cousins. This is the most exciting breakthrough in Morning Glories in a long time, and we’re delighted to be able to offer it to you this season!
Split Second flowers heavily from early summer until frost, thriving in blazing sun and any well-drained soil (but especially those on the dry side). The blooms are huge, very full, and delightfully twisted, with no two just alike. If you’re looking for a vine with a beautiful difference, Split Second is the one you MUST try!
There have been other double-flowered Morning Glories, but until now the flowers haven’t looked petal-packed and full. Split Second is a true departure from form for the family, and the results are just breathtakingly lovely!
This vine reaches 4 to 6 feet long, tossing up new blooms every morning. As its name suggests, it is an early-in-the-day bloomer, usually up and open before we are, and then closed by mid-afternoon. Be sure to plant Split Second somewhere you can enjoy it on your way to the car in the morning, so it can be one of the first flowers to greet you each day!
Like all Morning Glories, Split Second is very easy to grow. Direct-sow the seeds or begin them indoors for even earlier blooms, transplanting as soon as the vine has two sets of true leaves. (It will grow quickly and need root room, so don’t wait too long to transplant!) It’s great for hanging baskets, windowboxes, and tall planters as well as the sun-soaked garden, and it doesn’t mind a touch of summer drought. You will thrill to this magnificent update to a familiar favorite! Stock up now, because we’re not sure we can get enough seed to keep up with the season-long demand for this newcomer!
