Argyreia nervosa is a perennial climbing vine that is native to the Indian subcontinent and introduced to numerous areas worldwide, including Hawaii, Africa and the Caribbean. Though it can be invasive, it is often prized for its aesthetic value. Common names include Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, Adhoguda ??????? or Vidhara ?????? (Sanskrit), Elephant Creeper and Woolly Morning Glory. There are two botanical varieties: Argyreia nervosa var. nervosa described here, and Argyrea nervosa var. speciosa, a species used in ayurvedic medicine, but with little to no psychoactive value.

Shrubs or slender climbers. Stems villous or strigose. Leaves petiolate, linear or elliptic, sericeous or strigose. Flowers solitary, axillary, nodding; bracts 2-4, leaflike. Sepals 5, ovate-oblong to circular, ± equal, leathery, slightly enlarged in fruit. Corolla campanulate, waxy; limb erect, subentire or shallowly 5-dentate. Stamens included; anthers oblong; pollen globose, pantoporate, finely spiny. Disc ringlike. Pistil included; ovary conical, ± 2-loculed, glabrous. Style 1, filiform; stigma capitate, 2-lobed. Fruit a berry, enclosed by persistent calyx, glabrous. Seeds 1-4, glabrous. [more]
The genus Ipomoea is the largest in the family Convolvulaceae, with over 500 species. Most of these are called "morning glories", but this can refer to related genera also. Those formerly separated in Calonyction are called "moonflowers". The genus occurs throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and comprises annual and perennial herbaceous plants, lianas, shrubs and small trees; most of the species are twining climbing plants.

Herbs or woody twiners, usually pubescent. Leaves petiolate, ovate to circular, herbaceous, base cordate, margin entire or 3-5-lobed. Inflorescences axillary, dense, sessile or short-peduncled, ± umbellate cymes; bracts early deciduous, small. Sepals subequal, herbaceous or ± leathery, pubescent or glabrous, apex acute or obtuse. Corolla urceolate; limb shallowly 5-lobed, midpetaline bands pubescent outside. Stamens included; filaments inserted near base of corolla, dilated basally into a large concave scale that arches over ovary; anthers narrowly elliptic to linear; pollen globular, pantoporate, finely spiny. Disc cupular and ± 5-lobed or ringlike. Pistil included; ovary glabrous or pubescent, 2-loculed; ovules 2 per locule. Style 1, very short; stigmas 2, capitate. Capsule globose, 4-valved. Seeds 4 or less, glabrous or puberulent. [more]

Twiners woody or herbaceous. Leaves petiolate, ovate to circular, abaxially spotted with minute glands, as black dots in dried specimens, base usually cordate, margin entire. Cymes axillary, 1- to many flowered, peduncled; bracts early deciduous, small. Sepals ovate to elliptic or circular, equal or slightly unequal, much enlarged in fruit, ± leathery, abaxially glandular punctate, margin membranous, apex obtuse to emarginate. Corolla funnelform, midpetaline bands ± pilose and with minute glands. Stamens and pistil included; filaments filiform, inserted near corolla base; pollen globular, pantoporate, finely spiny. Disc ring-like. Ovary glabrous, 4-loculed; ovules 1 per locule. Style 1; stigma 2-globular. Fruit enclosed by enlarged calyx, globose; pericarp thin, eroding irregularly between septa to produce a lanternlike effect. Seeds 4 or fewer, pubescent. [more]
At least 21 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Turbina.
