Need help with my type or kind of Morning Glory vine mine is please? It produces no seed at all, it has fig leaf style leaves, it dies down for the winter but returns in spring, also it has dark color purple flowers. It can grow 25+ feet long vines! Will grow into the garage with no light and it will keep growing and stay alive in there through out winter if I let it! I love it but I don't know if is a Japanese Morning Glory or what?

Looks like Ipomoea hederacea - Ivy Leafed MG .. are you sure it doesn't produce seeds?

I agree with Jay. I. indica. A very aggressive vine in frost free areas.

I think Jay is right too!

I think for sure it's Ipomoea indica, looks just like that!

Thank you all so much for all your help :)
I have searched all over Google etc trying to pin point which one it was with no luck.

No it does not produce even one single seed or pod. When the flower dies, that's it. No round seed pods form or anything like on my regular Morning Glories or Japanese MG's form.

Where I live we do normally go down to 20 degrees and it even snows here once every other year or so.
So the vine just grows again from roots in the ground that are normally sheltered by my bench or flagstone etc. I love the vine but I do have to trim it sometimes when it tries to cover the front door screen etc.

Thank you all for your help I really appreciate it so much.

Watch it closely! Here, those vines came up on the other side of my mobile home, and the front, and in my laundry room it came up the washer drain pipe. After cutting it dawn and pouring RoundUp on the stump, I had to remove skirting and use a rake to pull all the vines out from under the house. They are really beautiful, but could probably take over the world, if not managed. Hilarious!
