Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Thomas Jefferson forwarded seeds of this vigorous vine to his two daughters, Mary and Martha, in 1791 from Philadelphia. The seeds of this morning glory relative were planted "in boxes in the window" at Monticello. Cypress Vine is a self-seeding annual with star-shaped scarlet flowers and ferny foliage that attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost at 70˚F. Before sowing, scarify and pre-soak seeds for 24 hours. Transplant to individual pots, then harden off and plant outdoors after the last frost. Seeds can also be sown directly after the last frost. Provide a support structure. Approximately 10-15 Cypress Vine (Ipomoea quamoclit)seeds per packet.

* Cypress Vine is on the invasive plant watch lists of the following states: NC, GA, FL and LA.
