Ipomoea tricolor I think has mostly entire leaves. This could be I. indica, but only lateral close up of flower showing showing  calyx  should help.

The main feature of distinction is calyx lobes. in I. indica calyx lobes are 10-20 mm long, ovate-lanceolate and long acuminate, pubescent or glabrous. In I. nil sepals are 15-25 mm long, narrowly lanceolate, tapering into long tip and more importantly long hirsute especially near base.
  In fact I. hederacea is very close to I. nil, but tips of calyx calyx lobes in fruit are straight in I nil, but curved to one side or recurved in I. hederacea.

perhaps we should not worry about that now.  I. hederacea Jacq. was recognised in eFlora of pakistan, but now both I. hederacea Jacq. and I. hederacea Baker & Rendle have been merged with I. nil.
