I found this plant growing out by my cacti. I'm not sure if it's morning glory, but they do grow here naturally and the leaves kind of look like morning glory. I attached a picture below. Can anyone tell me what this is?
carlturney posted a question in Plant Identification (non-cactus)Hi All, (1) About a year or 2 ago, I bought a packet of "Ipomoea violacea var Milky Way" from our most excellent benefactors here at SAB. It sure seemed different than the I. violaceas I've grown in the past: A more hairy plant, and the number, size, & shape of the seeds were slightly different. Now I see a Wikipedia entry that says Milky Way are I. purpurea, not I. violacea/tricolor. Anyone point me to a reference that would clear this identification up? (2) Any info anywhere on whether Milky Way seeds are more, less, or similar (in psychoactive effects) to Heavenly Blues or Pearly Gates? (3) Finally, if it =is= I.purpurea, I read a post about that being a more invasive and weedy species. So not likely to die in a typical Melbourne-type winter? By the way: Whatever species it is, I had lots of empty seed pods and no signs of seed on the ground. So the local mice (or ?) probably like it a lot. Thanks very much, Carl Melbourne
Can anyone compare the growth rate & vine size/thickness of these creepers? Morning glory (MG) Rivea Corymbosa (RC) Argyreia Nervosa (HBWR) I have a large lattice in a sunny position I would like to grow some sort of vine over for added privacy & was thinking of using HBWR or RC. I already have MG growing down my fence line & its a pain. I rip it out every year only for it to come back again & again (its been there for years & has become almost indestructible). The vine grows fast, gets in the trees, on the shed & over just about anything it's tendrils can reach. I don't want another vine that grows as quickly & invasively as this, but I do like the idea of having a developed HBWR or RC in my garden. After reading HBWR & RC "can be invasive" & the fact their from the same family I'm somewhat weary they could become as much a pain as MG..... do they grow as fast? Cheers for you're help, AF
