The fruit in the photo here :

is remaining erect , that means by the relevant professional treatments , it CAN'T be Ipomoea coccinea , but does match Ipomoea hederifolia exactly...

Will someone be updating the ID of this entry ?

The 4th photo clearly shows fully erect seedpod pedicels which means it isn't Ipomoea coccinea but it completely consistent for Ipomoea hederifolia.

The 2 species are visually very similar but have different chromosome counts and are chemo-taxonomically different.
