Hello Donna, and welcome to the group. we have at least two members of the group who are growing
Ipomoea platensis.
I have a question.  What do you do with the plant over the winter?  I
started mine from seed this spring.  It is growing outside in a small pot,
and our frosts are now slowly killing the leaves.  I plan to take it
indoors soon, and I'm wondering if it should be stored dry.  (Maybe Alberto
C. can provide some information, too.)
Regarding caudiciforms, take a look at Gordon Rowley's Caudiciforms book. 
It has photos of lots of interesting species.  As for pelargoniums,
Silverhill Seeds has a very nice selection.
