Flora of Panipat: Merremia aegyptia village untla Panipat:
Merremia aegyptia
From village Untla (Panipat)
Wild in a roadside area

Growing wild only

Some more Pics from Village Kabri Panipat

are these seed pods or more flower buds..
what is striking is the hair on the surface..
would they be the same  number // density on both the buds and seedpods??/
did you get any ripe ones to pop open?

Only Flower Buds


Convolvulaceae Week: Merremia aegyptia from Panipat Roadside area:

Thanks for showing this species. Again a unique one.
The leaves …palmately compound are unique. (Some Vitaceae member climber is close to this in the picture)
Calyx buds very much tomentose….Outer sepal much hirsute is the differentiating feature from other Merremia species.

This species is sometimes mistaken for Merremia cissioides which a very similar structure except that the calyx on M.cissioides would be glabrous.



Morning Glory for ID : Mumbai : 261111 : AK-1:
Seen at Maharashtra Nature Park, Mumbai on the 14th of November,11.
A climber with small white flowers, flowers closing by afternoon.
Kindly id.

look like Meremia sps, family convolvulaceae

Looks like Merremia aegyptia, Family- Convolvulaceae.

Yes, Merremia aegyptia (L.) Urb.

Climber For ID : Delhi : 220414 : AK-17 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3).
Climber seen growing wild in Garden Of Five Senses, Delhi on 6/12/2012.
Flowering was over, could find the dried pods.
Stem was very hairy.
Seems to be a Convolvulus Species.

It will be Ipomoea species.

Merremia aegyptia is a guess in absence of flowers leaves and size of capsule.

Many thanks …

Merremia aegyptia.

Pergularia daemia :: Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park :: 24 OCT 18 : 12 posts by 3 authors. 6 images.
Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park  Jodhpur
Date: October 24, 2018 … Altitude: about 300 m (980 feet) asl
Pergularia daemia  (Forssk.) Chiov.
Pergularia daemia is twining around branches of Cryptostegia grandiflora.  

To me looks different from images at Pergularia daemia

Yes, …, it does look different from flowers / fruits of Pergularia daemia … but I am not able to guess.
I am not sure whether it has something to do with premature dying of the plant – whether the dried structures are buds / flowers. I am not confident.
At other spots in the park, the climbers on Cryptostegia grandiflora was only Pergularia daemia – I must be mistaking.

Climbers seems to be of ipomoea turpethum

Thanks … I have not seen Ipomoea turpethum (syn of Operculina turpethum) in this manner; could be I have missed such sight.

I think Merremia aegyptia is also worth consideration..

Thanks … for the pointing to possibility of Merremia aegyptia.
It may be very well possible, if we especially check the last picture, I think it shows a dried palmate leaf.
I hope someone validates your thought.

Thanks, …,
Both of you may be right as per images at /species/a—l/cl/convolvulaceae/merremia/merremia-aegyptia

Surprising why you it is dried flower? for me it is fruits of Ipomea species. please check.
infect leaves (check dry one) are also alternate not opposite 

Thanks, … This has been identified as Merremia aegyptia

Thank you very much … for validating and sticking to following up of this confusing post. Many thanks to … for the ID.

Ipomoea sp (Climber) on Salvadora oleoides  

Looks like Merremia aegyptica

I was going to say I have never seen ipomea to be so wooly//hairy, …
then I walked away , when I came back there was this suggestion from Rakesh
makes perfect sense, even though the original picture is sort of fuzzy,
hence it is called hairy woodrose.
a nice set of pictures : to confirm
