Morning glory was first known in China for its medicinal uses, due to the laxative properties of its seeds. It was introduced to the Japanese in the 9th century, and they were first to cultivate it as an ornament. A rare brownish-coloured variant known as Danjuro is very popular. During the Edo Period, it became a very popular ornamental flower. Aztec priests in Mexico were also known to use the plant's hallucinogenic properties. The seeds of many species of morning glory contain ergot alkaloids such as the hallucinogenic ergonovine and ergine (LSA). Seeds of I. tricolor and I. corymbosa (syn. R. corymbosa) are used as psychedelics. The seeds can produce similar effect to LSD when taken in the hundreds. This can be very dangerous and even deadly, so avoid doing this.

This pest causes problems by:
It wraps around other plants cutting out light, and constricting the victim plant. These plants can grow incredibly fast.
How to get rid of it:
This is one of the hardest weeds to get rid of. Rip it out at the roots every time you see one, and you will at least reach a draw with this aggressive plant.
