Unidentified Vine

Asked July 26, 2019, 1:40 PM EDT

Looked everywhere's online for just 1 photo of this plant and could not find it anywheres! Could someone please tell me what it is, if it is poisonous, and should I get rid of it? Thanks for your time! Sincerely, Mark

Gloucester County New Jersey

Your vine is probably an ivy leaf morning glory vine, Ipomoea hederacea. See https://courses.missouristate.edu/pbtrewatha/ivyleaf_morningglory.htm for more identification characteristics. Some gardeners grow them as ornamental annual vines and other gardeners despise them as weeds.

Morning glory seeds are poisonous, https://www.poison.org/articles/2007-jun/are-morning-glories-poisonous.
