I was sent some 'freebie' seeds with an order awhile ago for this climbing vine .. somewhat like a 'Morning Glory' .. but I've lost the seed packet with the name.
Would anybody know what this is & whether it is in 'invasive' or not? Is it transplantable at all, once it's started growing?
Thanks for your help! Thank You!

The flowers are like this-


Thumb of 2015-01-19/FleudeLisCanna/f9c45d

and the leaves are 'heart shaped' & the size of a palm of a hand.

TY! I was doing a 'Google' search when your reply came thru .. it is indeed! By all accounts, they can be transplanted, which I will have to do .. the seeds were moved from where I planted them by recent heavy rain & it's growing amongst ground covers.
I was totally unaware they were in so many colours! AND I didn't know they were related to Sweet Potatos .. which I've grown in hanging baskets for their foliage! :)
Cheers! I tip my hat to you.

I had this very cultivar and, while very pretty, I'm still pulling seedlings from 6 years ago.

Aww jeeze FleudeLisCanna ... be prepared for an obsession that will hit you hard. Morning Glory's come in all shapes sizes and colors! Head on over to the Vines and Climbers Forum:

What you are going to see are not the 'run of the mill' morning glory's most everyone who is not a fan thinks of.

Thank You! I shall now rethink my rethink on this .. I do have a 'paddock' of 1/4 acre with plain fences .. may move it there, away from 'garden proper' areas .. or do they 'travel'?? Crying

It's not so much they travel but in the amount of seeds they produce.

A tall MG can have LOTS of flowers. Here is mine. 12'+ and that is with cutting back.

Oh, you got me now .. THAT'S gorgeous! I'll just rethink where I can transplant it to .. I have a dead tree w/- branches outwards (trimmed) in the middle of a garden that is planted out in the 'cottage style' .. I think it would look great as a centre piece there!
Will it twine enough to hold itself up .. the surface has uneven texture, not smooth? It's in morning to mid-day sun & gets shaded by a garage in the afternoons (& protected from winds) from the west. Howz that? Shrug!

That should work for you. Post pics when it grows. If you're set on doing this, plant more than one. I think mine was 3-4 plants. They will reseed like crazy! You'll have plenty to share. Hilarious!

:) There is only the one plant that grew from the seeds sent to me .. are these MG's self fertile? Do they regrow from the same plant, should they be effected by frost, or do you have to replant more seeds?
As these are related to Sweet potato, do they have a tuber develop at the base? I haven't dug it out yet, so thought to ask before I do transplant it. :)

These are self fertile. You do not need another to get those seeds. And they are annuals that will flower until frost kills it. They are related to sweet potato, both being in the Ipomeoa Genus. I'm not sure how well they transplant as I've never done it.
