Ipomoea for ID : 220111 : AK-3: Again taken at Nasik,Maharashtra on the 31st Oct,08.
Tiny flowers.

it is Ipomoea triloba.
check eflora of india database.

Ipomoea triloba has much smaller flowers than Ipomoea cordatotriloba.

I would say Ipomoea cordatotriloba based on the size of the corolla in relation to the leaves.

Thanks for this name. Has Ipomoea cordatotriloba been reported from India?

This creeper grows each year during rains in our Nasik garden and quickly covers other trees. So has to be cut regularly.

Could you list a few identifying features of this species (from close relatives in India).?

Since many sp. of Ipomoea has been introduced to India Ipomoea cordatotriloba Dennst. could be possible :Alabama Plants !

Resembles Ipomoea triloba too

Adding a couple of pictures.
Hope these help.
