By the way correct spellings are Ipomoea horsfalliae


Ipomoea horsfalliae is mostly very self-incompatible due to reproduction via cloning, so therefore seedpods and seeds are rarely ever seen…

This species is very clonal and therefore self-incompatible , therefore rarely produces any seedpods or seeds…
I thought it noteworthy to mention the scarcity of seeds.

this evergreen woody vine is commonly cultivated all around the world. The ornamental features are its foliage and the flowers.
The leaves are palmately divided into five to seven segments, and are very atractive smooth green color. The noticable long red flowers are in groups. Even before the flowers emerge the buds are a positive feature, because they look like small berries.

This species has been reproduced by cloning to the extent that most plants have lost the ability to make seeds and as such seeds (which would have a higher genetic diversity than clones) are very rarely found, even in native habitat…
I have been searching for seeds for ‘several years’…


Photographed in October 2011

Sharing pictures of Ipomoea horsfalliae growing along a fence of a private garden at Pune


The plant you have photographed there is unusual as there is visible in photos #1, #3 and #4 seedpods developing… I hope to locate seeds someday…

Creeper for ID from Bangalore: I saw this plant growing on the compound wall of a house in Bangalore and would like to know it’s name.


… this could be the cardinal creeper, Ipomoea horsfalliae (family: Convolvulaceae) – native of the Caribbean, Brazil. Let us wait for validating comment(s).


I’ve attached a couple of photos of flower close ups…


Cardinal Creeper, Ipomoea horsfalliae from me too.

Need ID for a flower.: Photographed a flower near satara but not been able to get a precise ID. Looks like a species of Ipomoea but a more specific detail would be helpful.
URL of the photo is http://www.flickr.com/photos/ravi_gogte/5638162302/


– …. most probably Ipomoea horsfalliaenative of Caribbean and Brazil.
