As a comment about Bumpy Convolvulaceae (Ipomoea tuberculata), Reine wrote:

Ipomoea tuberculata is one of the first caudex-forming Morning Glories I am growing. Although still seedlings, the very small tubers looked promising during transplanting.
I plan on planting them in a raised bed with trellises for maximum growth next spring, then pot them up for winter dormancy indoors.
There is very little information I could find on this species.
I am eager to see the plants a year from now, and I hope to add more information regarding growth and cultivation.

My original thoughts and facts are incorrect on Ipomoea tuberculata.

The plant is an annual and is not a caudiciform. The plants grew well, flowered profusely (though the flowers close before noon), set seed and then the plants sucumbed as annuals normally do.

Ipomoea tuberculata is a pretty plant and would do well in outdoor window boxes where you could enjoy the morning flowers. And this is why they are Morning Glories
