Yaguruma asagao, marketed as Windmill Rose.
Yaguruma is from a hybrid cross of Ipomoea purpurea x Ipomoea nil which was then back-crossed with Ipomoea nil. This youjiro trait (ray white) was developed by Dr. Yoneda in Japan. Read more here: http://protist.i.hosei.ac.jp/asagao/Yoneda_DB/E/relatives/04_3.html
I love these flowers, each one opens into a perfect flower.
