Morning-glory, common name for herbs, shrubs, and small trees of the family Convolvulaceae. Predominantly climbing plants, morning-glories are found in warm climates. Their fast-growing vines bear colorful, funnel-shaped flowers (some of which only open in the morning) and can grow to heights of 10–20 ft (3–6 m). The sweet potato, bindweed, moonflower, and garden morning glory are some plants belonging to this family.
