Anyone growing salmon black eyed susan vine?

I ordered seeds of salmon shades black eyed susan vine from Thompson Morgan. The leaves are large, light green, very hairy and have concave bumps that make it look like a toad...the leaves are shaped like a fleur de lis. It has not bloomed at all yet. This does not look like any black eyed susan vine I have ever seen, nor like the picture in the catalog. Did I get something by mistake? Anyone grown this before?

I've grown several varieties of Thunbergia alata, including Salmon Shades and all looked pretty much the same except for the bloom color. The only real difference I noticed was that Raspberry Mousse, which I got as a plant, not started from seed, has never produced any seed pods. Can you post a pic of your vine?

Thanks, Karyn1. I looked at lots of photos and what I have is NOT thunbergia alata...guess if it ever blooms I may figure out what surprise they sent me. Hope its purty!

Well, it turned out to be picotee blue morning glory! Looks nothing like a morning glory with big tripointed hairy leaves and thick stems. Quite a surprise!
