    Photos show leaf shape, slightly obscured flower and seed pod.
    Hear-say says plant originates in Afghanistan, photographs are from Philippines.
    Found growing near moving water.

    Many thanks Lora and Lila, Ipomoea setosa, I agree - the Afghanistan Pakistan/Himalayan species this plant was confused for is probably Ipomoea muricata which has stubby spines rather than spiny spines, cordate leaves and pendulous seed-pods - other than that it is fairly similar (habit, damp shady position, seeds "hairy" until mature, lilac trumpet flower).

    Photo is believed to be I.muricata

    All the best,
    Matt

    That purple trumpet flower thing is a noxious weed here in Australia.
    It grows like nobodys business and will take over within one season if u let it.
    I have tonnes of it in my back yard.
    Ill try to find out what it's name is and get back to u.
    P.s. havent found out how u eradicate it yet.....

    Hey, Blondieisright, I am still interested to know what the Light purple trumpet flower, climber growing in your back yard is - it may be different to Ipomoea setosa or I.muricata which are South American and Pakistani plants - can you post a photo ?
    Thanks,
    Matt
