Is ipomea invasive in your garden, if so how do you control its spread?

In warmer climates they can be aggressive growers and once established difficult to control. Locally have seen roadside trees/shrubs totally engulfed by the vine, spectacular show when in bloom though.

Here in my climate they are not hardy - the annual I must grow every year new
The perennial ( sometimes with caudex ) are in pots - summer outside ...in winter in my greenhouse or basement
Sometimes survive here seeds of I.purpurea and grow in next spring without any help ...but no problem !

Which species grows in your area ?

Research has revealed that: To help protect our environment: You must not breed, distribute, release or sell blue morning glory. As blue morning glory is a National Pest Plant Accord species, these restrictions apply within the Auckland region and across the whole of New Zealand.

The top part of NZ is probably now sub tropical, providing ideal condition for the vine to flourish.

In my area are vine yards and fields with tobacco ( the warmest part of Germany )
Here grows ( but very rare ) Dioscorea communis :)

The lack of snow during winter probably means that here the vines do not get a winter check.
