Heavenly Blue Ipomoea tricolor has a Yellow Throat.

Looks like Ipomoea hederacea to me.

Can you post a photo of the sepals?

Still looks like I. hederacea to me, which has either Heart-Shaped leaves, or Tri-Lobed leaves. See if you can get a photo 'behind' the bloom showing the sepals, and more especially sepals on a seed pod that is almost mature.

Like this

and this

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/229895/

The sepals look very different when the seed pod is mature or almost mature

The photo here
http://garden.org/pics/2011-10-08/StephGTx/a59d28.jpg
shows sepals that are typical of an Ipomoea hederacea , so , I would agree with the assessment offered by Emma

Hope that helps

You are very welcome Stephanie, Glad I could help

BTW: Your I. hederacea has a nice Dark Blue color that I really like
Mine was a much lighter Blue
