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.

Very nicely captured calyx lobes which are characteristic.

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

Fwd: Nigeria- Ipomoea indica or Ipomoea nil? : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)

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.

Surat, Gujarat, India.
Spotted white Ipomoea nil
On morning of 26 10 2019
(A member on Indian Flora fb group confirmed having spotted it in Gadchiroli , MH about 4 – 5 years ago)
A perfect Diwali gift from Mother Nature.
Happy Deepawali to All of You.

Nice catch. This is seen in many places in Karnataka/ Mysore


Surprising. Never saw a post on it in many fb groups I participate in.

Ipomoea for id confirmation: 4 images.

This plant was growing in disturbed ground in Thane district. Photos are from the same spot at different times from September to December, 2017 and 2018.
I had identified it as Ipomoea nil (L.) Roth but not sure if it is the same as Ipomoea hederacea Jacq.

Please confirm


Flora of Pakistan gives the following keys:

13 (12) Sepal tips erect or slightly curved 11 Ipomoea nil
+ Sepal tips curved to one side, at least when plants are in fruit Ipomoea hederacea
Flora of Pakistan further says ‘This species (Ipomoea nil (Linn.) Roth) and Ipomoea hederacea Jacq. are very similar. Some authors have switched the names or considered them synonymous. One or both play an important part in the ayurvedic medicines. The seeds are used as a purgative.’
Going by images in POWO 1 and POWO 2 and keys in Flora of Pakistan above, I think it should be Ipomoea nil

This is very helpful. I can see a small difference in the two species.

Dear friends,
For sake of curiosity, please help with the genus or just the family to which this ¿ fruit ? belongs.


Ipomoea family?


Thanks …, now that you suggested, I too think it may be some Ipomoea sp.
Let us wait for comment(s).


Any match : chalk.richmond ?


Thanks …; yes, it does look like the fruiting of Ipomoea nil.
I will revise my notes in flickr accordingly.
