That photograph appears to be of an okra blossom. It is not an Ipomoea. For your reference here is a photo of Ipomoea batatas , specifically "Beauregard." http://www.lessnoise-moregreen...

I agree. There is no I. batatas foliage in the pic either.

You both have awakened my memory and you are right. During that time I now remember that okra was on the east and west sides of the garden because the sun was so hot for the sweet potatoes in full sun.
I am SO VERY sorry for this mistake. I will correct it.

I see you've proposed that the image be moved to Abelmoschus moschatus 'Oriental Red.' Is this what you wanted to do? The other photos in that entry show a red bloom.

SteveandJeanne, if your photo is of okra it is Abelmoschus esculentus, not A. moschatus.
