Ipomoea obscura 'Ethiopia' differs from Ipomoea obscura 'Keniyaki' by the color of their throats. While 'Ethiopia' has a dark throat, 'Keniaki' has a white throat.

Seeds sown indoors in March produced one flower in July, but late August and into September it has bloomed profusely. Several plants on a trellis will make a beautiful afternoon display.
They like heat to bloom and do best in the sun.
Flowers will stay open until dusk and reopen around noon the next day.
