Ivyleaf Morningglory

Glenn Nice, Purdue University

Ivyleaf morningglory (Ipomoea hederacea) can be a troublesome weed. This summer annual can be the scourge of agriculture late season at harvest, causing mats of vines to inhibit combines. Once it has some size it is often difficult to control. However, its beautiful trumpet-like flowers and climbing growth habit make it easy to see why many people used it as an ornamental.
