IDENTIFICATION — In summer, large showy pink or purple flowers open along the stems of this annual weed. It gets its common name from its hairy, distinctly three-lobed, ivylike foliage. Its twining vines, up to 10 ft. long, wind through other plants and pull them down or shade them out.

FAVORITE CONDITIONS — Ivyleaf morning glory is commonly found in almost any soil where it gets full sun in gardens and farm fields.

CONTROL — Pull or hoe this annual weed before it sets seeds.
