16. Ipomoea ×multifida (Raf.) Shinners, Sida. 2:265. 1966.


Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida, USA

  • Ipomoea ×sloteri (Nieuw.) Ooststr.
  • Quamoclit multifida Raf.
  • Quamoclit X sloteri (Nieuw.) House

    Climbers, the stems glabrous. Leaves broadly ovate to ovate-oblong, deeply incised, mostly 2/3 to ¾ midrib or base, the 3-7 pairs of segments narrowly lanceolate, glabrous. Flowers solitary or in 2-5-flowered cymes. Sepals elliptic to oblong, 5-8 mm long, obtuse apically, with a long mucrone. Corolla deep red, throat changing to yellow in some plants, 4-5 cm long, salverform. Fruit capsular, ovoid, 7-9 mm long. Seeds dark brown to black, glabrous or with patches of short trichomes.

    Fl. Per.: March to June.

    Type: Perhaps based on plants originally grown by Mr. Sloter of Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. Probably no specimen preserved.

    B-6 Peshawar Dist.: Peshawar University Campus, cultivated, S.B. Akhtar s.n. (PPFI-B).

    Distribution: Originally from the Americas, now cultivated in many parts of the world.

    This is a hybrid between Ipomoea quamoclit and Ipomoea coccinea, and has the most attractive flowers in the Quamoclit group. Those plants that we have grown have all been self-compatible and autogamous. Most previous authors treat this as a distinct species.
