Ipomoea hybrid

For years I've daydreamed about using Ipomoea pandurata to make
crosses with more colorful Ipomoea species.  So this morning I set out
to do that with Ipomoea coccinea.  O.M.G.  there's pollen everywhere
and I can't find the stigma -- I think it's smothered with pollen
already!  Good grief.


Any words of wisdom from the PBS forum?  :-)

PS:  I was successful, however, in crossing Passiflora x 'Manta' with
Passiflora lutea this morning.  And by that I mean I was able to apply
pollen from one onto the other, and vice versa.  :-)  Only time will
tell if they develop fruit.
