I stumbled upon this on Amazon - its called a Bumble Bee Morning Glory. I can't find genus or species on the page of what this flower is .. doesn't look like a MG to me .. anyone recognize this?



Here's a link to the page:

I don't know, but here is another pic, they just don't say what it is. But it does appear to be a morning glory.

I'm thinking it's not a member of the Convolvulaceae Family of plants.

In the text on Amazon it says the leaves are "heart-shaped". I think perhaps the seller used the incorrect photo for the plant he is hawking, er, selling.

If you read the comments in Seedfork's link you will see that it is Turnera subulata.

Couldn't read the link because it would not open. Sorry that I voiced an independent opinion; thought it would be an okay thing to do.

Thanks! The seller doesn't have very good feedback and I was pretty sure that wasn't what I would call a Morning Glory! It's a pretty flower though!
