This is an interesting morning glory that is not a climber. From the Convolvulceae Family and known by its common name Pink Morning Glory, this plant can grow into a huge sprawling, prostrate shrub.

The 1st two photos show a single plant with lots of floral buds and numerous opened pink trumpet flowers.

But this shrub attracts the pest stink bug. I remember this pest used to be very common in my Primary School, and everything we see them, we love to crush them and that is when they unleashed a very overpowering nasty odour. This is their defence mechanism against predation by other bigger predators up the food chain and web.

Links on the plant and on the stink bug are attached below:
