This large Wild Morning Glory is common everywhere along roadsides and in fields and thickets, where it twines and trails extensively over the ground or low shrubbery, from June to August. The main stem grows from three to ten feet in length, and is round, leafy, and generally smooth, or sometimes minutely hairy. The slender stemmed leaves are triangular in outline with squared, angular lobes at the base, and are tapering toward the tip. The large, bell-shaped flowers are usually pink, shading to white at the base of the tube, with five tapering white stripes radiating from the centre and extending to the edge of the corolla. Five stamens and a pistil, all white, are set within the tube. The five green calyx parts are nearly enclosed by two large cupped bracts. The solitary flowers are set on the tips of slender stems. They bloom extensively, and show a preference for moist soil, from Nova Scotia to North Carolina, and west to Minnesota, Utah, and Nebraska.
