Small Red Morning Glory

Ipomoea coccinea

Description:

While the bright orange-red flowers are attractive to look at and seem to appeal to butterflies and other pollinators, this plant is listed as a troublesome or common weed by Georgia Exotic Pest Plant Council. There is some debate as to whether it is native to the eastern US or an introduced invasive - in any case, it's aggressive.

Habitat:

AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, WV Found in disturbed areas along roads, stream banks, fence rows, old fields and other waste areas.

Notes:

Spotted in a construction area near Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
