Lavender Moonvine, Gariya;
 
The green seed pods are used as a vegetable. We don't eat the pods raw. It is cooked. At my home we cook it in different ways.  We make a dish where the pods are sauteed in oil with onions and green chillies. It is also cooked in a curry with coconut. 

In I. muricata flowers lavender to purplish, tube narrow and cylindric, 3-6 cm long; limb c. 5 cm across. Sepals subequal, ovate to elliptic lanceolate; the 2 outer ones 6-7 mm long, attenuated into a fleshy caudate awn 4-6 mm long; the inner 7-8 mm long, obtuse or slightly emarginate, the awn somewhat shorter; bracts c. 4 mm long, leafy, oblong or obovate-oblong, acute, caducous.

Requesting ID of this purple flower
Captured in Mumbai in September 2012
Ipomoea sp.
Recently, I saw a similar flower identified as Ipomoea turbinata. Can this flower be also Ipomoea turbinata?
The flower looks similar to the one posted by me from Lalbagh, Bangalore which could be Argyreia hookeri as in flowersofindia.
My flower too yet to be identified.
Yes I agree with ... the flower seems to be Argyreia sps.
not sure of the species
This would be Ipomoea turbinata looking at muricate (bluntly spinous) stems, season, appearance and colour of the flower. Flower size 5-6 cm can confirm the ID. Further if the picture was taken at evening it will certainly be I. turbinata. Peduncles enlarged in fruits is the key to its ID. 
Thank you ... for the ID....
And yes, the flower was captured in the evening..

Dioscorea for identification :: 050115 :: MK006 : 8 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (7)  
Please help me in identifying this Dioscorea climber.
Leaf: up to 20 cm long
Habitat: riparian
Date: 27 Oct 2014
Location: Coimbatore dist, TN
Alt.: 400 m asl
It is Ipomoea related plant only, please find open flower and decide the species.
The combination of all of the parts, leaves, sepals and pseudo-tubercles = Ipomoea muricata.
It is Ipomoea alba L. (moon flower, evening glory), synonym Ipomoea bona-nox L.
How are you differentiating Ipomoea alba from Ipomoea muricata based on what is present in the photos ?
Please elaborate and enlighten.
In Ipomoea alba flowers white, with greenish midpetaline bands; tube cylindrical, 8-15 cm long; limb rotate, 8-12 cm broad; sepals ovate to elliptic, subcoriaceous, glabrous, unequal; outer 2 or 3 shorter, 1-1.3 cm long and with a long, thick, recurved or patent awn, below the top; awns 5-9 mm long; the inner ones longer, 1.1-1.5 cm long, mucronulate. bracts small, caducous.
In I. muricata flowers lavender to purplish, tube narrow and cylindric, 3-6 cm long; limb c. 5 cm across. Sepals subequal, ovate to elliptic lanceolate; the 2 outer ones 6-7 mm long, attenuated into a fleshy caudate awn 4-6 mm long; the inner 7-8 mm long, obtuse or slightly emarginate, the awn somewhat shorter; bracts c. 4 mm long, leafy, oblong or obovate-oblong, acute, caducous. All the characters are not shown in the photos.
Thank you for your reply as the information describing the characteristics of Ipomoea alba and Ipomoea muricata corresponds with my own.
I have grown and examined both species and have noted some additional personal observations.
My assessment of Ipomoea muricata is based upon what is present in the photos supplied mostly gleaned from the initial unnumbered photo showing the tubercles on the stem in addition to photos # 5 & #6 and I would elaborate & clarify as follows :
a) tubercles - much more common and widespread on Ipomoea muricata as seen in the initial photo.
b) secondary bracts - usually only present in early stages of calyx development therefore indicating early flower-buds and not fruit ; more likely to be persistent on I.muricata as they serve to protect the generally smaller upper calyx; the calices are pre-corolla blooming and may exhibit changes after further development.
c) size of awn arista in relation to outer sepals and in this case the awn arista is about the same size as the outer sepals of about 5mm as can be seen in photo # 5 & photo #6.
d) size of inner sepals - on I.alba can be 2 -3 x size of outer sepals , although the inner sepals in these photos are not longer than the outer sepals, but are approx.equal to outer sepals on Ipomoea turbinata.
So , it could be either of the 2 very closely related species , although I opted for what is currently visible in the photos supplied.
Thanks to all for their input..
As the photo is of flower bud, it is difficult to decide. But as the bracts shown in the photo are clear, leafy it may be I. muricata

Convolvulaceae week: Ipomoea muricata from Trivandrum:

A few pictures of Ipomoea muricata from my garden in Trivandrum.

The green seed pods are used as a vegetable. In Malayalam it is known as ‘nitya vazhutana’.


I am wondering if you eat the seedpods yourself and if so, do you eat them raw as in a salad or are the pods fried (?)
Please let me know for reference on how these are used as human food.
We don't eat the pods raw. It is cooked. At my home we cook it in different ways.
We make a dish where the pods are sauteed in oil with onions and green chillies. It is also cooked in a curry with coconut.

Yes it is Nithyavazhuthina (നിത്യവഴുതിന), I. muricata.
The new name for this plant is Ipomoea turbinata Lag. of Convolvulaceae family
It's new to me and a very delicious vegetable. I found more info here
