Summer annual broadleaf
A summer annual twining or climbing vine with heart-shaped leaves that may reach as much as 10 feet in length. Cotyledons are moderately indented with rounded points and have hairs that stick straight out from the cotyledon surface. Mature leaves are alternate, broadly heart shaped, and also have hairs that stick straight out from the leaf surface. The funnel-shaped flowers are attractive and purple to pale blue or white in color. Entireleaf morningglory closely resembles tall morningglory. Tall morningglory has hairs that lie flat on the leaf surface, while the hairs on entireleaf morningglory stick straight out from the leaf.
