I am pretty sure to be Ipomoae cairica (without the Database!)

I missed this plant in Malta- never seen. Not sure about Ipomoae cairica, but seems to be close related, at least.

thanks for the info, but to late :( And I thought I know the garden. However, the truth of "I know that I know that I know nothing" comes clear again :)

Same here - I cant identify a Galium spp from the leaves Grrr... (which theoretically should be enough ) and cant find anywhere Reseda lutea and Euphorbia peplis at Ramla (despite I visit the beach every time I go to Gozo) !! I call these the "Boogie Plants" plants which tease you or hide away from you but show up to others!
