Speckled Japanese Morning Glory

I have one line of speckled Japanese Morning Glories that I’m growing this year to hopefully introduce into my Princess project.  This line comes from Eiji Nitasaka of Kyushu University, Japan and is called Q0663.  The line is supposed to carry the maple willow gene to produce the dianthus type flower, but none of my grow outs to date have revealed this.  They have however shown that they carry the duplicate (dp) gene which creates a true double flower.  I was treated to two double flowers this morning!  A double double!  This speckled flower will look great on a Princess plant.

Q0663 - showing the duplicate flower
