AIpomoea Lepto

Ipomoea leptophylla, Bush Morning Glory, is a native perennial of the South-Central states of Texas and New Mexico; the Plains states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota; and the Mountain states of Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Stems bend into an arc as they grow, forming a bushy clump that can reach about three feet in height. Large funnel-shaped, pinkish-purplish flowers occur at the axils of the plant’s linear leaves. The preference is for dry to medium-dry soils that are particularly sandy or gravelly in nature. You can find Bush Morning Glory in grasslands, roadsides, banks and somewhat disturbed areas.Ipomoea Leptophylla, also known as Sweet Betsy, is native to North America, South America, and Africa, but widely cultivated elsewhere.

We dig plants when they are dormant from our outdoor beds and ship them April-May and October. Some species go dormant in the summer and we can ship them July/August. We are among the few still employing this production method, which is labor intensive but plant-friendly. They arrive to you dormant, with little to no top-growth (bare-root), packed in peat moss. They should be planted as soon as possible. Unlike greenhouse-grown plants, bare-root plants can be planted during cold weather or anytime the soil is not frozen. A root photo is included with each species to illustrate the optimal depth and orientation. Planting instructions/care are also included with each order.3-packs and trays of 32, 38, or 50 plants leave our Midwest greenhouses based on species readiness (being well-rooted for transit) and order date; Spring shipping is typically early May through June, and Fall shipping is mid-August through September. Potted 3-packs and trays of 38 plugs are started from seed in the winter so are typically 3-4 months old when they ship.

POTTED PLANTS (Trays of 32/38/50 plugs and 3-packs) typically begin shipping early May and go into June; shipping time is heavily dependent on all the species in your order being well-rooted. If winter-spring greenhouse growing conditions are favorable and all species are well-rooted at once, then we ship by order date (first come, first serve). We are a Midwest greenhouse, and due to the challenges of getting all the species in the Mix & Match and Pre-Designed Garden Kits transit-ready at the same time, we typically can't ship before early May. Earlier shipment requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Definition: one of three metabolic pathways for carbon fixation in photosynthesis, along with C4 and CAM. This process converts carbon dioxide and ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP, a 5-carbon sugar) into 3-phosphoglycerate through the following reaction:\r\n\r\nCO2 + H2O + RuBP → (2) 3-phosphoglycerate\r\n\r\nThis reaction occurs in all plants as the first step of the Calvin–Benson cycle.
