Here are some views of the Ipomoea macrorhiza plants I have had growing for 2 years. It's a fun one to grow but I would advise planting it in a container. You can see how large the root can get in just 2 years, so if you plant it in the ground you may end up with a forever plant.

Thanks, Mary.

It is the tenacious hard to control species that give Convolvulaceae a bad reputation with many people. I am happy you think otherwise.

That is wonderful you are growing this native morning glory, Betsy! Are you growing it in a container, too?
