The picture below shows the vine that is growing in my pot.I think it is a morning glory but the stem and leaves are not that hard.Can someone identify this vine?

Thank You

Yes, looks like either Ipomoea hederacea or Ipomoea nil...both of these are most commonly a blue color

There is even 1 leaf in the lower left of the 2nd photo that looks like (perhaps) either Ipomoea coccinea or Ipomoea hederifolia and these 2 species may have smaller blooms that are a reddish ,orange or yellow color...

Please post a closeup of any flowerbuds when they develop and I can narrow the ID for you...

Hope that helps...



P.S. - Did you plant any MG's (?) or are the plants volunteers (?)

P.P.S. - There are also a couple of leaves in the lower left of the 2nd photo which are completely cordate (i.e., heart shaped) and this may be Ipomoea purpurea...
