Morning Glory

Most morning glory flowers (Ipomoea indica) unravel into full bloom in the early morning. The flowers usually start to fade a few hours before the "petals" start showing visible curling. They prefer full solar exposure throughout the day, and mesic soils.

Although this plant grows wild on the island, its presence could be considered a sign of civilization and that is found mostly on trails and paths where it often covers tha dry stone walls.
