Strange sweetpeas

Hi All,

I was after some everlasting sweet peas a few months ago and my mum told me that she had some that my grandad had given her (he passed away about five years ago). I tenderly soaked them for 24 hours and then planted six of them. One of them took, but I am finding something very strange as it is now flowering. It flowers fully during the day, but at night it closes up again (as if it is sleeping), very much like "Morning Glory" does. I have googled this strange phenomenom, but I can't find anything at all. Does anyone have any ideas? It is a beautiful flower, small and delicate, but dark pink in the middle with lighter wings.

Thanks

Jules348
