Ipomoea learii or blue ornamental bindweed also called the dayflower is a spectacular bloomer that produces amazingly beautiful blue flowers from early spring until late summer.
In warm countries it blooms all year round.
There are shrubs in their natural habitat that produce up to 60,000 flowers in one year (300 per day), this has been observed by L. Bailey (1928) a famous horticulist.

This ornamental bindweed is an ideal tub plant for your terrace or veranda, it is a fast climber and can best be kept in check by cutting it back in time.  
If the plant freezes and the crown is well covered, it will return in the spring.
Overwintering is similar to the Fuchsia. Cut the plant back to 20/30 cm above the ground.
Protect this well with straw and you can leave it in the ground, in any case that the frost can not penetrate the roots of the plant.

If you overwinter it in a tub, keep the soil reasonably dry (give water sparingly) and hibernate at a temperature above freezing.
Again, you can cut back the plant to 30/40 cm above the ground.
In the spring the plant may be given more water and fertilizer. You will be amazed by the lush growth and flowering of Ipomoea learii.
Winter hardiness zone 10 (0ºC).
