I agree that the blooms and calices shown are NOT anything in Convolvulaceae , but do look exactly like the species previously suggested = Asystasia gangetica.

I see 1.5 cordate leaves along the right edge of the photo , but nothing else in the photo looks to be anything in Convolvulaceae.

I agree that the flower and sepals are NOT any Ipomoea but likely Asystasia gangetica.
