Alamo vine is found growing in disturbed soils of the Edwards Plateau and the South Texas Plains. Even though it is a member of the morning glory family, the flowers do not open in the morning. Instead they bloom in the heat of the day and close before sunset. The white flowers with purplish centers bloom between May and October and are about 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide. The leaves are 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches long and have five or seven deeply incised lobes.
