Classic morning glory. Covers itself with flowers.
Along with Heavenly Blue, this is the classic morning glory! Vines are extremely vigorous, up to 15 ft., and are literally covered with small, dark purple-blue flowers up to 3" across, with a red star at the throat. Thought to be originally from Bavaria, this is probably the easiest morning glory you can grow, and it will self sow even in cold climates.

Beautiful deep purple flowersI love this morning glory. Thinking I'd get a head start on the growing season, I sowed them indoors, but they didn't take well to transplanting. So, because the weather was warm enough, I direct sowed some seeds, and boy, did they take off! The color is beautiful -- a dark purple, just like in the photos, with a slight magenta tinge to the interior. They're really quite lovely. No real maintenance, either, other than making sure that they're watered during hot, dry spells.
