Ipomoea wolcottiana is a vine that I found in Acapulco in December 2005. The 5" to 6" Blooms look like Pure Satin that are a Bright Solid White, with a Deep Dark Burgundy Throat.
It appears to be a long climber as it winds through the top of an Acacia Tree, and from the looks of the vine it has some age.
Exquisitely Beautiful!
Ron made the positive ID on this Morning Glory for me.
