If this is Ipomea purpurea
can i safely call this Indica?
please do take a good look at the calyx.
Regards,
Masud.
Edited to say sorry for no title and i can't rectify.

Hello Masud,

From a distance it does look like Ipomoea indica, check this description ..

Hi Masud,

The one in your first photo sure looks like Ipomoea purpurea to me. It has a strong resemblance to the cultivar called Grandpa Ott's:

Tall Morning Glory (Ipomoea purpurea 'Grandpa Ott's')

And I agree with Janet, the second does look like Ipomoea indica:

Blue Dawnflower (Ipomoea indica)

I tip my hat to you. . Thank you Lin. Grandpa Ott's? Yes, i agree and this is a very narrowed down ID. Crying Now i have to inform zuzu about Grandpa.
I knew it was indica from the calyx but i wanted Janet to agree. Whistling When i saw the plant and the flowers i had to take a photograph. nodding
Janet, how about the Acacia with out the thorns and that poor little mutated Roxburghii? Confused
Regards,
Masud.
