Ipomoea purpurea-Kniola’s Black is a cultivar of Ipomoea purpurea, a hybrid variety of the species Ipomoea nil. The cultivar’s synonyms include Convolvulus purpureus L., Ipomoea diversifolia and Ipomoea glandulifera. Like other similar cultivars, Kniola’s black is originally from Mexico and parts of Central America. Places that also double as being the locations for a lot of Kniola’s black’s distribution. Kniola’s black is a herbaceous climber that can grow to a height of 2 to 3 metres. The flowers have a deep purple colour that’s nearly black. Each flower has a pink throat, a trumpet shape and a diameter of between 3 and 6 cm. The stems are hairy, and the leaves are ovate and sharp at the axis. Kniola’s black is a hermaphrodite that produces numerous flowers over the course of the summer. The calyx has sepals that are pubescent and the stalk holding up the inflorescence in 12 cm long. Kniola’s black is of value due to its ornamental qualities. The lovely flowers and foliage easily improve the aesthetics of every location they one places them. The plant can easily be found growing around pillars, trellises, and fences. The pleasant corollary of using Kniola’s black as an ornamental is that it grows outwards and provides a nice cover. Such a development is always a welcome one in the case of fences. Kniola’s black grows best in medium loamy soils. It can, however, also grow well in soils that are either slightly sandy or heavy clay. The soils should also have good drainage, high moisture content and be rich in minerals. Soil acidity should be low and so should the basicity. Kniola’s black is highly sensitive to frost and areas that experience frost conditions all year round would be less than ideal. However, if the summers are sufficiently warm, then one can plant seedlings indoors right before summer and transplant them when the season arrives.
