''Ipomoea purpurea'', the Purple, Tall, or Common Morning Glory, is a species in the genus ''Ipomoea'', native to Mexico and Central America. Like all morning glories the plant entwines itself around structures, growing to a height of 2–3 m tall. The leaves are heart-shaped and the stems are covered with brown hairs. The flowers are trumpet-shaped, predominantly blue to purple or white, 3–6 cm diameter.
