      Akatsuki no Murasaki, or The Purple at Dawn, is a rich, deep purple with a deep pink heart. The velvety texture and sheer size of this glorious beauty make it a stunning center piece or an amazing blend with any other morning glory to any garden. Akatsuki no Murasaki reminds me of the Star of Yelta or Grandpa Ott, but much much bigger. It blooms heavily throughout the summer and fall if well maintained.
