Sir,

As i told yesterday the convolvulaceae week still goes on ringing into my mind...... !
Balkar Sir, the Hero of the Convolvulaceae Week posted a member at - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/v0uQhLe41_Y/discussion.


I have been watching this twiner since then. It took long time to show me its buds. Well, buds only, no flower yet!

The most interesting part of my story is that it was growing alongside Ipomoea alba L., often intertwined with the later. Who knew that it would also turn out another convolvulaceae one day!!!

Species : Operculina turpethum (L.) Silva Manso
Habit & Habitat : wild twiner, as gigantic as Ipomoea alba, winged stem, leaves size equals that of Ipomoea alba but with more prominent venation
Date : 19/10/12, 10 a.m.
Place : Kamarkundu (Hooghly)

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Good morning Sir

Now i find this is common here, spreading in waste-places, beside rail-tracks with its white flowers and pinkish seedpods.

Thank you very much.

Regards,

surajit
