Small Red Morning Glory

Ipomoea coccinea


gardens, moist fields, disturbed areas


Noticed it blooming one afternoon as I arrived from work. It was growing over a small palm tree in the parking lot of my building. It is now gone, the landscapers must have removed it.

Ipomoea hederifolia is also a very real possibility since they are extremely similar and are often only able to be distinguished by the calyx / developing fruit.

Thanks for the suggestion. I find plants (and fungi) very challenging, with plants there just seem to be so many varieties of species. It seems at least from this one site that we may be talking about the same species of plant. If anyone can clarify it is always welcomed.
