We planted this thinking it was one thing and I'm positive it isn't! Now I don't know what it is, can you help? We planted ten seeds that we were told were morning glory, but I can't find a picture of a morning glory that matches what we are growing so I need some help.
These seeds are vining really well, no actual flowers in sight though.

It looks like a morning glory to me.

I'm glad you think so! I can't find pictures anywhere of morning glory with this leaf type, that's why I was asking. And idea when actual blooms might show up? How big it vines before flowering?

More like one of the ivies to me. Tend to think of mg's as having more heart-shaped leaves, but I see there is an ivy leaved mg. If it blooms...

Hee, every few days I'm pulling what looks s JUST like what you planted. In fact, yes, it is I hederacea.

I don't think I'll ever be rid of it.

It's lovely...but so very invasive...it twines over everything to the point that if left unremoved, it will cause tall plants to fall over and smoother anything.

Took this photo this morning (just of the bloom though)

Thank you for helping me out. Our leaves on this thing just appear so odd. They almost look shriveled and sad even though they get plenty of water. They are growing everywhere, but don't see any indication of it flowering.
