I got this from seed and it is finally blooming. It was "ipomoea nil " but couldn't read the last word begins with "S". It has purplish specks on the white.

Could that word be "Speckled"?

Might have been "Shibori," although that is supposed to mean striped.

Just noticed, too, that those leaves don't look like I. nil leaves. Do you have a better picture?

I agree about the leaves.
