Convolvulaceae
The Bindweed Family
Plantae
This is a Family with about 1800 species in 50 genera found in temperate and tropical regions of the world. In dry Mediterranean or semi-desert climates, they are mostly woody shrubs, and in rich, bushy vegetation or open, drier places, they are usually climbers with long trailing or twining stems. There are one or two trees, and some species grow in almost pure sand on tropical beaches. They are often weeds, e.g. Hedge Bindweed (Calystegia sepium) and Field Bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis), and sometimes parasitic, e.g. Common Dodder (Cuscuta epithymum). Plants which may be weeds in their native country are sometimes grown as ornamentals, and there are now many hybrids of Ipomoea purpurea grown in gardens. The Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) is an important food plant in the tropics, and some species have medicinal uses.

Sumi...have you tried to take a cutting? Morning Glories are notorious for rooting every little cutting, even when not wanted! :o))

HI, my problem is I'm not able to get one to grow in my balcony garden. I can never find the seeds on the plants whenever I see them at roadsides and in the bush. I love Ipomoea!
