This genus includes many ornamental twining vines as well as the edible sweet potato.

Ipomoea purpurea

Native to tropical America, this annual grows 5 to 10 ft., climbs vigorously. Large, trumpet-shaped flowers appear in red, blue, white, pink, purple, and striped, and last only a day each, but keep coming in spring and summer. Heart-shaped leaves are large and dark green.

This is listed as a noxious weed in Arizona and Arkansas.
