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?

Yes, thank you, Janett!

The plant is in its third year from seed.

I would say most of the MG species other than the common ones in the horticultural trade would have to be grown from seed. Caudiciform plants can be high in cost and on eBay it is always a gamble.

My plant began flowering last year. This year it should make more flowers and I expect seed production.

I don't know if it is mentioned above, but this species flower has a gentle fragrance. ❤
