I believe that the plant for which you are looking is Telosma cordata. It is available from Logee's: https://www.logees.com/chinese-violet-telosma-cordata.html (https://www.logees.com/chinese-violet-telosma-cordata.html)

My friend from San Diego was looking for this plant about six months ago. She ordered from Logees. The flowers look nicer and wider than the one that I bought from a vender at Swapmeet. My friend told me the one she bought from Logees is not the same variety from Philippines or Vietnam.
The flowers are fragrant in the evening until early morning.
