Twiner for id – 271012 ANB-0016 – Mumbai:   I’d love to know the name of this vine that is flowering at the moment. The petals are violet with white patches.


Ipomoea nil, I suppose.


Sending a few of my photographs of this. They were taken at Shahapur.


Since you have them I take it that its native Indian vine?


Affirmative. It is a native species. Unfortunately have no photographs of its fruit / seeds, but could rectify that shortly.

May be Ipomoea nil. Check the characters


The sepals most closely match Ipomoea nil and the cluster formation is typical of some of the wild strains.

– I agree that the species is Ipomoea nil , although the Real “Scarlett O’Hara” has a solid red corolla including a solid red tube… http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/168717/
The cultivar with white tube is “Wine & Roses” http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/55119/

Convolvulaceae Week: Ipomoea nil from Delhi and Dakpathar:  

Ipomoea nil  (L.) Roth, Catal. Bot. 1: 36. 1797.

Convolvulus nil L.

Species appearing similar to I. indica but with sepals densely hirsute at base, often slightly curved above, lighter coloured smaller flowers.


I have a query about differentiation between the three species.
I.indica
I.nil
I. learii

I have seen the last one in Mahabaleshwar with … (Will post it separately)
I hope you will tell us the differences clearly.


According to  eFlora of Pakistan, eFlora of China and The Plant List, Ipomoea learii  Paxton is a synonym of I. indica. I have given differences between I. indica and I. nil. Here are specific differences:

Ipomoea indica                               ​                                                          Ipomoea nil

1. Stems appressed pubescent, sometimes rooting at nodes           1. Stems covered with long spreading hairs.

2. Leaves pubescent with short hairs                                                 2.  Leaves with long spreading hairs
3. Infl. Several flowered in dense umbellate cymes.                          3.  Inf. 1-few flowered.
4. Bracts linear or lanceolate.                                       ​                      4. Bracts linear or filiform
5. Sepals subequal, gradually linear-acuminate,                               5. Sepal almost equal, with spreading long hairs on outside
     appressed pilose, outer 3 lanceolate to broadly                               near base, subglabrous above with linear tip
     lanceolate, inner 2 narrowly lanceolate.
6. Corolla blue or bluish-purple aging to red, 5-7 cm long.                6. Corolla pale to bright blue with white tube, fading pinkish  
                              ​                              ​                                                              with age, 3-5 cm long
7. Capsule 10-13 mm across.                       ​                                     7. Capsule 8-10 mm across

I couldn’t log into the site in order to post these pictures. So I decided to send it through your email.
I want to know whether this is Ipomoea indica or Ipomoea nil? Don’t mind the look, we are still in the dry season here in Nigeria so there hasn’t been rain for some months now hence the a bit yellowish look of the leaves.


Yes, Ipomoea nil to me.
