First noticed early summer presumably grown from seed, has flowered since July, early flowered carpels now swollen with x5 radial symmetry as has flower, albeit v blurred photo. Corolla of petals fused similar to morning glory closing at night. Lower stem red purple, not used hand-lens but think hairless, leaves as photo alternate.
