Default Wedding Bells morning glory, cross with Flying Saucers

I'm getting ready to buy my morning glory seeds for spring! Now I get
most of my unusual ones from Ebay. I've given up on trading since I
often don't get the right things. I'm still trying to keep Wedding
Bells from going extinct. I had some success a couple years back, and
even got a cross with Flying Saucers. Flying Saucers is now safe from
extinction, it's available at K-Mart
and Wal-Mart, after being nearly lost in the early 90's. Wedding Bells
is still unavailable anywhere commercially.
The cross came out as a solid periwinkle, with no stripes.
Germination rate with Wedding Bells is much lower than Heavenly Blue.

I'm trying Flying Saucers this year, bought the seeds at Franks. This
is my first try at named varieties, we've had the wild ones for years.
Also trying Milky Way and Sunrise Mix (variegated foliage). Are they
really that hard to germinate?

They do have to be soaked in water overnight before planting - the
seed coat is very hard. Flying Saucers are great - my personal
favorite. Also, the ground must be kept from drying out until they
sprout.

I tried a bid of your last ones, it blew my mind to see what they went for at
the end, way outside what I can afford.
