I’m on vacation, so please accept my apologies for the brief entries. — Daniel.
And another thank you to David Tarrant for these two photographs, also taken in late July near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in late July. Much appreciated!
Commonly known as tumbavaqueros in Mexico, Ipomoea stans is a Mexican endemic (so has a more restricted range than yesterday’s Ipomoea longifolia). It is estimated that there are somewhere between 500 and 700 species of Ipomoea, making it the largest genus in the Convolvulaceae.
I should have noted it in yesterday’s entry (as it was Thanksgiving in Canada) — the “sweet potato” that often finds its way onto Thanksgiving tables is also an Ipomoea: Ipomoea batatas.
