      One of the most enjoyable aspects of growing morning glories is finding new varieties that hitch a genetic ride through other cultivars. This is one that I found growing in one of the Fujis that I got on ebay which produced several cultivars already. The Shadow of Mt. Fuji is an animated dazzling array of shades of purple and burgundy like shadows around the mountain.
