Looks like a sweet potato.

If you planted it... perfectly normal.
If it's wild... maybe don't eat it.

ipomoea pandurata is a common wildflower in these parts, and I enjoy the flowers...
While some sites claim edibility, other sites say not...

I can't see the leaves in your photo but my first thought also was possibly Wild Potato Vine (Ipomoea pandurata)

Some said it's possible Jimson Weed... I'm not sure, tho. I found it growing out in the country where my Papa grew up. Smiling

I hope you can see the leaves better in this one. I reached up to touch one of the flowers to see if it was sturdy or delicate, when I grabbed it, the top tore off. They were almost blooming out and wilting as I stood there.

I would tend to agree it is a Jimson weed.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
