There are a lot of Argyreia species in this part of Asia and you won't find photos of most of them on the web yet.

Sorry to hear that!

The photo does look very similar, so I'll go with it.

Interesting website by the way :)

Thanks for the suggestion Jill, I've had a quick look online but I can't find any images which quite match with this one. Either the petals are too separate, or the leaves don't look quite right.

Do you have a photo of your plant?

Thanks for the additional suggestion Alice. Is this species very variable in colour, because the photos I've seen of I. indica show darker colours around the edge with paler colours inside, rather than the opposite as seen in my spotting?

It is a type of Morning Glory, but found on the beach in Florida Ipomea indica.

Hi Seema,

Thanks for the suggestion :) but are you sure this is I. violacea - the images I've found all seem to show flowers that are much more blue than this...
