The Q&A Archives: Identify Flower

Question: Hi I am looking for a kind of flower that I have seen. It is purple/pink, closes when sun goes down and when the sun comes up it opens. It also climbs like a vine. What kind of flower is it? Thank you debbie

Answer: The flower you describe sounds like a morning glory (Convolvulus). Morning glories are annual plants and come in white or blue flowers as well as purple/pink. They are climbing vines so they'll need some support and they grow best in full sunshine.
