Purpurea is a distinct species, however even in the image vaults what is posted as a purpurea is a fading tricolor. Ipomoea purpurea or common morning glory, is the more robust of the ornamental morning glory with double the growth rate and size of violacea (tricolor). The main differences are a smaller, more numerous flower of purple, pink or white-never blue, a thicker growth shoot covered in hairs-violacea's shoot is slender and smooth, and finally the seed capsule.
In Ipomoea violacea, an enlongate pod of typically four seeds points upward, whereas in purpurea the smaller, rounded pod of typically six seeds points down. Finally the seeds themselves of violacea are enlongate while the smaller purpurea seed is round.
Active dosages seem to be in the three to six hundred range. I make a simple one-step extraction with straight grain, all two step extractions seem to create a much weaker product-regardless of species. I simply let ALL the sediment settle out of the grain so it is clear yellow green-not cloudy. Definitely sedating with little to no nausea. However the purpurea has a taste that is exponentially more vile than the tricolor. It reminds me of turpentine or battery acid.
