    Hi Patty, About the ipad issue - we will look into it. I suggest you download Hometalk's new app here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hometalk-home-garden-knowledge/id643027980 When you open the app on your ipad, click the "x2" on the bottom of your screen to resize it to the full screen. Good luck and let us know how you like it!

    doesn't bloom but turns a beautiful red in fall. It just started coming up every year in an unused pot on an unused deck! It's not a morning glory....leaves are smaller and narrower,stem is pretty red.......

    I'm no expert, but it looks like wild morning glory to me. I have some growing on my back fence right now. They have begun to bloom white flowers. ??? good luck.

  • Yes it is morning glory, we planted seeds we got the same vine as you but no flowers yet.

    Looks like wild morning glory to me. Had some years ago but honestly can't remember if they turned red.

    Here's another shot even though I was loathe to show the disrepair my upper deck is in. The lower one is the one I use! This just shot up in an unused pot,doesn't bloom, but turns red infall and comes back each year. -Patty

    My morning glory turn red in the fall, but blooms a beautiful deep purple late July and August. I agree, Morning Glory.

    thanks , all , but I have had experience planting morning glory....when this does bloom it is tiny insignificant whitish flowers along a stem....but really doesn't bloom much at all.....def is not morning glory , I should put my hand down there so u can see the proportion . It has me stumped!

    I'm thinking it is honevine milkweed (aka honey milkweed). Here are a couple of botanical names to google: Cynanchum laeve, or, Ampelamus albidus.

    thank you everyone....Walllace Gardens, you certainly are coming up with some good suggestions, but amazingly it is not one of the two mentioned above. The red stems are very apparent when you first see this vine. I just discovered it starting to grow in one of the pots on the lower deck now, too! The leaves are barely lined and have almost no veins, and is a lighter green than most that it has been compared to. (They are about half the size of a morning glory leaf). Oh well.....

      For some reason this is popping back up in my news feed after several years. Here's another possibility, Patty: Fallopia cilinodis (Fringed Black-bindweed) which is a native wildflower. If you google that, you'll find some good images that may help with an ID ....in case this is still a mysterious visitor at your home.

    wild morning glory has white blooms, and the blooms are smaller than the purple/ blue ones

    there are also some strains of morning glory that do have red stems. google red stem morning glory- pics of different morning glory s should show up
