Notes:

Much like my morning glories, but the flower lasts all day, for one day. Any idea on the name? Also, any idea what is eating the leaves (and flowers) and what the best way would be to control? Thanks.

    Link to species in CT. Maybe the folks on this link can ID the correct species for your plant. http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2702&q=323482

    Maybe species in the (Calystegia)(?). Sorry, I can’t tell which species this is. According to sources if the weather is favorable the flowers cant stay open all day. Check out one of the species in the genus, the Calystegia silvatica (the short-stalked false bindweed). Perhaps you could get in touch with the folks on one of the included links for its exact ID. It’s hard to tell what is eating without seeing the culprits. According to sources, Calystegia species are food sources for larvae of butterflies & moths. So it’s likely you are raising butterflies & moths without even knowing. https://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/species/calystegia/silvatica/
