… spent the day at my farm at Shahapur yesterday (12.10.09).
Sending photographs of some of the plants identified by him including some clarifications and corrections.
Ipomea clarkei with its lobed leaves.
Can it be Ipomoea triloba L. as there is no other post of Ipomoea clarkei in efi ?
I feel you are correct … This thread also needs attention
A feedback from another thread from …:
P.S. – am not willing to comment on my other post ‘Ipomea clarkei’ because these plants were identified by both … Have sought further clarification from them but it has not been forthcoming.
Sir this vine grows abundantly along the bank of Western Yamuna Canal and its tributaries in Panipat Karnal Sonipat and Jind Area

This can be Ipomoea triloba..
Yes it is Ipomoea triloba. One interesting character of this plant is that the plant sp. possess two types of leaf one with cordate leaf and other with trilobed leaf that I had found in my place. I attached here my specimens.
Last fortnight I clicked some plants with cordate unlobed leaves growing on hedges in our resort. Next day I saw similar plants but with trilobed leaves that I could identify as I. triloba easily.
Wow i never heard this type of variation interesting Thanks … for throwing light on this
Yes Ipomoea triloba.
A very common climber growing all over Pune city even by roadside.
Yes it can have trilobed as well as just heart shaped leaves. The flowers are generally much smaller than its regular sized leaves.

Flower for Id pl.

to me the leaves, flower and fruits belongs to different plant,
Please check it, the leaves may be of some Indigofera sp, flower of some Ipomoea sp & fruits of Achyranthes aspera.
Flower is Ipomoea triloba of Convolvulaceae.
Leaves should be heart shaped and could be 3 lobed.
Thanx … Yes … It didn’t struck to me.In fact I was wondering why leaves were not matching with flower 🙂

I think it’s Ipomoea, but could not identify upto species level.
Would you please help me to identify this plant.
Enjoy Autumn festivals.
this may be a photo of Ipomoea involucrata. This plant unlike many other Ipomoeas is a perennial. The flowers are about 1-1.5cm opening early in the morning and closing around 9-10a.m (Kolkata). The large boat-shaped outer bracts cover the buds.
Appears to be Ipomoea triloba L.

Thanks, … Your contributions are unique and outstanding.
Ipomoea triloba is a recent introduction to India, If I remember correctly, first reported from South India in 1977.
Being a recent Exotic there would not be enough authentic ‘deshi’ names I’m afraid.
… yes, not enough ‘deshi’ names yet.
In fact, I gave a name to this plant in Marathi while compiling names in other languages.
I find this plant very commonly and abundantly during its season in my vicinity, and it would not be justified for the plant to not have a name in Marathi.
इवळी भोंवरी ivali bhonvari = little bindweed.
It has gained an invasive status. Within 5 years in Surat, it has surpassed Operculina turpethum and Ipomoea saggitifolia in numbers. And the flowers it produces is way too many ! Only solace is, most of the vines do not survive long.
so its widespread in india. where do you think it came from? and how?
what commodity do we buy that will co-travel with these weeds?
Somehow I missed on asking during compilation of names, whether Ipomoea triloba has any Nepali name(s).
Please help if there is/are.
I already checked but not listed in Nepal!
It is listed in 2014 !
Thank you ….someday in later years, it will earn a Nepali name for sure, at the least for the beauty of the flowers and leaves.
… thank you very much for adding different variants of the flowers. That is quite a collection.
…, there was something wrong …there was a message about large size of message and non-delivery. Later I checked the web version of post and it was not showing. I do not know if everybody is able to see them. I was editing images, planning to re-upload. Now after your reply, I shall wait.
Thanks for appreciation.
