Re: variegated foliage

Referring back to our disussions earlier this season about variegated 
foliage:  Does anyone else grow morning glory 'Tie Dye'?  Talk about variegated 
foliage!   Not only are the blossoms flamboyant  - huge, ruffled, streaked with 
varying patterns - but the leaves have shape and color variations.  The leaves 
that get the most sun have definite purplish blotches along with their white 
markings.  The markings on both blooms and leaves seem to be totally random, but 
I think they are a lot of fun.

But another example of the strange weather - the vines are huge - planted in 
a large pot in the breezeway they grow all the way up the corner of the garage 
and onto the roof - but there have been absolutely no flowers until this 
week. My other morning glories - 'Grandpa Ott's' on the other side of the 
breezeway, and gone-to-seedlings all over the vegetable garden - have been blooming 
for nearly a month.  Once it started, it has gone all out.  This morning there 
were 14 "flying saucers" across the garage roof.  Auralie  Z5
