Bush Morning Glory

Out in my crunchy brown pasture I have a summer UP. (Unidentified plant). It appeared several years ago and I mow around it each summer. Now I know it really isn't a weed and may try to gather some seeds!
This morning I found an old garden section from The Denver Post that had a piece about Colorado native landscape plants and there was a picture accompanying the article that helped me identify my plant. 
Bush Morning Glory
aka Man Root

Until I know what something is I don't touch it as I don't want to have any reaction to it, as in poison ivy. Here's a link with some interesting information:

Ipomoea leptophylla
One more week of summer's not really a vacation as there is a lot of work to do around here. As in yard & garden, cleaning, and finishing the kitchen cabinets on the other wall.

What a find!! I just know I could have a plant that would live in a field, but as soon as I tried to cultivate it in a garden it would die!!!

Where did summer go? My goodness time flies by. I see kids in the metro area returned Monday! It is way too hot for school! But year round school takes no break in the summertime.
I love morning glories so when I saw this post! Oh they look so lovely. Best of luck getting the info you need. Hugs Anne

What a nice discovery, finding out what your UP is. It's very pretty - worth mowing around. You've got such a green thumb, Marilyn.
