That is an interesting observation, Dany. I have not witnessed this phenomenon but will watch the plants which have not flowered yet to see what happens.

Dany - I see that happening on some of mine, too!

Now here is the real question ...

If we collected seeds from that first bloom, would they produce a vine of flowers shaped just like that???? Now that would be really cool if they did!

Only the star-shaped flowers I think NOT!
But very likely the seeds will have the genetic makeup of this cultivar with this property to make star-shaped flowers.

Here is a stange foliage - Ipomoea Nil ?

Dany - LOL! I think you are right! Here is a star shaped bloom on my Heian Umi x Rose Silk vine. I usually notice the star shaped blooms towards the end of a vine's lifecycle as well as the very beginning.

What cultivar do those unusual leaves belong to?
