A convolvulacea like creeper/climber

Post by MWP admin » Tue Nov 06, 2007 9:55 am

Can you save me some time on this creeping plant which I made my mind to be a Convolvulacea member. Should be peanuts for RB and JP. I tried Ipomea but I only found species with coloured flowers.

They come in all colours, to the best of my knowledge/memory the white ones open mostly at night and have larger than normal flowers around 10cm diameter. Are these flowers that large?

Some varietes are annuals, even.

I never really bothered with names on these, no doubt JP will be more precise.

The photo was taken around 9am so not sure if they open at night only - would say all day actually. I do some more searching later on...tnx

OK, I got it finally !

Ipomoea alba

Correct me if wrong. There is a website illustrating it if you search images on Google.
