Ipomoea cordatotriloba (Tievine) is an herbaceous perennial vine with twining green or purplish stems covered with alternate, petiolate, cordate or 3 to 5-lobed leaves. Blooming from summer to fall, funnel-shaped pink to purple flowers with darker throats are borne in axillary 1-5 flowered cymes. The blossoms open overnight and wither by mid-morning except on cloudy days. Attractive to butterflies, they give way to 2-6 seeded papery capsules.
