Morning glory (Ipomoea), fam. Convolvulaceae.
A creeper, sprouts relatively late, but then due to quick growth it reaches its greatest development by the end of summer. Tender flowers don't have any smell, but are famous for diversity of colors.
It is interesting that a close relative of morning glory is the sweet potato – a tuber-bearing vegetable, very appreciated in tropical countries and only gradually acquiring popularity in Ukraine.
