  • Bellvine

    Ipomea plebeia


    In north Queensland, red flowered bellvine (I. hederifolia) is more common.
    Seed leaves are v-shaped with a broad flat base extending slightly beyond the sides (see also cowvine, and common morning glory). True leaves have scattered hairs, with a notched base, becoming more pronounced as leaves mature. The notched leaf base formed by large basal lobes is very pronounced and regular, unlike in cowvine.
