Blue Morning Glory - Ipomoea purpurea

Share at Facebook

কলমি ফুলের মতন দেখতে, নীল আর বেগুনি রঙের হয় ফুলটা... এর আগে আমি নেটে দেখেছি ফুলের ছবি, কিন্তু এত তাড়াতাড়ি যে ফুলটার দেখা পেয়ে যাব ভাবতেই পারি নাই... আমি খুব খুশি বিদেশী এই ফুলকে স্বচক্ষে দেখতে পেরে...

Common name of the flower is Common Morning Glory, Garden Morning Glory, Tall Morning glory, etc. Scientific/Botanical name is Ipomoea purpurea. Belongs to the plant family Convolvulaceae(Morning-glory family). Native to Mexico and Central America.

Flowers are exactly similar to other morningglory flowers(shape of a funnel/trumpet) and having same characteristics like blooming at morning and demise at the end of the day. This flower appears in bright blue, violet, purple, etc colors. For it's bright color, insects are easily attracted to the flower. A star is formed inside the flower which is easily noticeable.

This annual trailing and climbing vine plant has heart shaped leafs and the stems are having brown hairs. It prefers the moist soil for growing. Though people nourish this plant at gardens, but its a weed unfortunately.

Photos of this article were taken from Mohera, Tangail(মহেরা, টাঙ্গাইল), during my single day trip at January 2012. Here is another Morning Glory(White) that I have posted few months back.
