Convolvulaceae Ipomea nil

Non-native

Morning Glory is found throughout the eastern United Stated. It grows as a climbing vine along roadsides and in disturbed soil sites.

The leaves are of little wildlife importance, and neither are the seeds. Some songbirds feed on the seeds, however, and the flowers support a wide variety of pollinators. This is a troublesome garden pest as the seeds remain viable for several years and it responds well to disturbance, burning, and herbicidal control of competition.
