    Preetina,

    I think its the mayil manikam :).
    I love it. It flowers and lasts for just about a single day only.

    Not sure as to what it is known in English.

    Will try to find out.

    Bye

    Prettina,

    I thought trumpet is also part of the morning glory family.

    just tried to verify through the reliable google.. and this is what i have

    Flowering Vines & Climbers @ Mountain Meadow Seeds. it says they are hummingbird vine red of
    (Ipomoea quamoclit) which is again the family of morning glory. i am not a botany student, though.
