This Ipomoea is also from South Sikkim in last October. I was guessing it to be Ipomoea rubro-caerulea.
Experts may kindly convey its proper ID.

Thanks and regards

Hello,

The majority of the leaves and clusters in the photo do not
belong to the same plant that has open corolla.

The corolla and the sepals that I see are that of Ipomoea indica,

regards,

Ron
