CC: The pink looks like a Picotee. I have pics. of the Mt. Fuji if you would like to see them. They usually have more white barring in them.

A couple of days ago, I picked up a similar plant (vine) from the wild roadside, but the flower is red. Must be the same, morning glory. It closes by evening.

Is picotee a japanese morning glory? The leaves looks like my Kikyo and the flowers too, but kikyo have purple flowers.

The word 'picotee' does refer to a thin, contrastingly-colored edge, but several seed catalogues sell both a blue and a pink DOUBLE MG the have named "Picotee Blue" or "Picotee Red" (although it is PINK). I've not seen a single-flowered version, and in the catalogues the leaves can't been seen. I have one color out of the "Mt. Fuji" mix, and it definately looks different from these. The white edge is wider and more regular, and a strong white stripe runs down the channels in the flower.My flowers aren't nearly so pointed, either---they're almost prefectly round. My leaves are shaped like these, but they're variegated. (So are the leaves of my Tie-Dye and Rose Zebra, two other Ipomoea nil cultivars.)I do like the way these look---wanna swap seeds?
