Ipomoea x leucantha is one of the extremely rare inter-specific hybrids within the genus Ipomoea and is the offspring of Ipomoea lacunosa and Ipomoea cordatotriloba.
The hybrid Ipomoea x leucantha is an annual and although it has been presented as being more invasive than either parent , there is no real evidence for claims of increased invasiveness except for certain researchers to continue to be funded by the chemical companies which pay them to produce the results that the funding sources expect...or funding gets cut of...
Ipomoea x leucantha inhabits the same exact areas that Ipomoea lacunosa or Ipomoea cordatotriloba inhabit...no more.
The greater the list of invasive plants grows , the more herbicides the chemical companies sell...think about it...
Question the results of studies funded directly or indirectly by chemical companies or Monsanto.
