Japanese Morning Glory (Ipomoea nil)

Via Flickr:
The seeds which gave rise to this plant came from Japan as a gift from a kind Japanese photographer I met on flickr.com. The flower is a dusky grey to purple color on the limb with the blizzard pattern, fading to white in the central area. It is an average size flower, measuring a little less than 10 cm diameter. The leaves are an awesome yellow-green color, and are very large size.
