Dear All
I observed many plants in flowering in last 10-15 days. And this i think happened after a long gap (many years) due to good monsoon. Every area is with greenery now days. Otherwise every year flowering was not so good.

My thought contributions toward the application of the nil epithet

Ipomoea nil is often referred to as "White Edge Morning Glory" and it
may be that due to the white (nil) colored edge in contrast to the
color of the rest of the corolla that Ipomoea nil was so dubbed...The
white edge is most often seen in asagao cultivars and not as common in
wild populations , so the 'nil' epithet may still remain somewhat
'unfathomable'...
