    Description

Ipomoea pes-caprae - Goat's Foot

This is a listing for a packet of 10 seeds of this sub-tropical creeping vine.

Also known as Beach Morning Glory (which more accurately describes the plant for most of us), this is a creeping member of the Morning Glory family of plants.  It is a pioneer species superbly adapted for colonising shorelines.  Its seeds float and are unaffected by salt water.  It has long roots that serve to bind together loose, poor soils such as those found near the high water mark.  It will rapidly colonise any area with its long stems.  It is found around the world on many sub-tropical/tropical beaches.

Called the Goats Foot (its Latin specific also translates as Goat's Foot) due to the shape of its leaves.  It produces the typical trumpet shaped flowers of the family year round in warmer locations (elsewhere it flowers in Spring through to early Autumn). The flowers only last for a day (they open in the evening and fade by the following afternoon), they are a glowing pink colour with darker stripes.

Easy from seed, it is an ideal as a cottage garden plant in warmer areas, even in more temperate ones if a microclimate (such as a favourable slope) can be provided.  The plant is tolerant of salt-laden air and even salt spray so is ideal for use in sea-side gardens.  Elsewhere it can be grown as a pot plant or in containers for use outside where it will take considerable neglect and still thrive.  It is hardy in zones 8 to 11.
