    It looks like a sweet potato vine

      Hi, Lisa No it’s not a sweet potato vine I have one growing not too far away it seems to have characteristics of a trailing climbing vine with softer hairs and I was thinking that it was a morning glory but wasn’t sure.

    I agree with Lisa! It looks like a sweet potato vine. Love the green! I've used it often in planters.

    I think it's a sweet potato vine too. Those do have a gorgeous green color. I'd leave it and see what happens.

      Yes my curiosity is up I’m definitely gonna leave it and see if I have any morning glories it’s got a behavior of a climbing and loves to wrap around things but no it is not a sweet potato vine. I will take a picture of all three with left being the moon flower center being the unknown leaf and the far right of sweet potato vine definitely have my Curiosity up. I hope it doesn’t disappoint I wanted it bloom something just anything .... I will repost in the morning..
