Two novel acylated anthocyanins were isolated from the red-purple flowers of Japanese morning glory ‘Violet’ (or ‘Murasaki’) along with three known pigments. These novel pigments were determined to be pelargonidin 3-O-[2-O-(6-O-(trans-cafferyl)-β-D-grucopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside]-5-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (1), and pelagonidin 3-O-[2-O-(6-O-(trans-p-coumaroyl)-β-D-glucopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside]-5-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (2). Three known pigments were also identified to be Pharbitis Red anthocyanin 1, and Ipomoea Red anthocyanis 1 and 4.
