Entireleaf morningglory

Ipomoea hederacea integriuscula

A summer annual, twining or climbing vine with heart-shaped leaves found throughout the Southeast and into the north central and northeastern United States.
Roots: Taproot.
Stems: Most often found climbing, hairy, reaching 10 feet in length.
Leaves: Alternate, heart-shaped, with hairs that stick straight out from the leaf.
Flowers: Petals are purple to pale blue or white and fused into a funnel.
Fruit: Brown capsules that separate into 3-4 parts when mature.
Identifying Characteristics: Entireleaf morningglory very closely resembles Tall Morningglory (Ipomoea purpurea), however the two species differ in the orientation of hairs on the cotyledon and/or leaf surfaces.  Tall morningglory leaves have hairs that lie flat (appressed) on the surface, while the hairs on entireleaf morningglory stick straight out from the leaf.
