Ipomoea tricolor

Fast growing perennial vine with bright green heart-shaped leaves with tri-color variegated leaves. Trumpet shaped flowers can be up to five inches in diameter, opening in the morning and lasting only for one day. They are commonly grown as an annual vine, and can easily take over the area - a great choice for areas that can be unsightly year around but not easy to remove, such as fences, dead trees, or brush piles.
