Ipomoea purpurea-Venice pink is a cultivar of the Ipomoea purpurea; a hybrid which also goes by the name of Tall morning glory. Ipomoea purpurea-Venice pink’s synonyms include Convolvulus purpureus L., Ipomoea diversifolia and Ipomoea glandulifera. The cultivar is originally from Mexico and large parts of Central America. It was from this region that Venice pink spread to other areas of the world. White the cultivar has the Italian city ‘Venice’ in its name, that name has no relation to its origins. Venice pink is a herbaceous vine that can grow to a height of between 1.8 and 2.4 metres. The flowers are mostly white in colour with raspberry-pink stripes on the petals. Each flower has a trumpet shape, a yellow throat and a width of between 3 and 6 cm. The calyx has pubescent sepals, and the stem is hairy. The leaves, on the other hand, are heart-shaped and sharp-pointed at the axis. Venice pink is a hermaphrodite and produces both male and female flowers in large numbers. Flowers that die are replaced with new ones while the plant increases its reach both in height and width. The prolific flower production continues through the summer well into early fall. Venice pink finds its value in the aesthetic qualities it imbues. The bright striped flowers and ovate leaves are beautiful to behold and are a welcome addition to many gardens, parks, and front yards. The fact that the presence of the flowers attracts butterflies and bees further bolsters the decorative effect. Venus pink requires a location with the most conducive weather and soil conditions in order to grow as fast as possible. Plenty of sunlight is important as it facilitates quick growth and blossoming of flowers. The soils should be fertile, well-drained and moist. Venus pink grows best in moderate loamy soils.
