Momizihirugao, Cairo morning glory Ipomoea cairica (L.) Sweet

Copyright 1998-2017 Yoshiaki Yoneda

It is thought to have originated in north Africa, and is distributed widely across tropical Asia and Africa. The author observed it growing thickly and very well in Southeast Asia. It climbs and clings to trees in Hong Kong. Leaves are deeply divided and five-pointed. As this resembles a maple (Momizi in Japanese), it is named Momizihirugao. Corolla light pink, flower tube densely colored. Photo of cultivated plants in 1983.8.23.
