Practical Weed Science for the Field Scout: Corn and Soybean

Milkweed, honeyvine (Ampelamus albidus)

Perennial broadleaf

Honeyvine milkweedHoneyvine milkweed
 

Honeyvine milkweedA perennial with slender, climbing or trailing stems that may reach 10 feet in length. Although the name implies a secretion of milky sap as in other milkweed species, this does not occur in the leaves or stems of honeyvine milkweed. Leaves are opposite, heart-shaped, as much as 7 inches long and 5 inches wide, hairless, and occur on petioles that are 1 to 4 inches long. Unlike other morningglory or bindweed species, leaf surfaces have distinctive white veins that arise from a common point. Flowers are small and white and occur in clusters. A large, smooth tear-drop shaped fruit with many seed is produced later in the season.
