Morning glories (Ipomoea spp) are long, twining herbaceous vines with colorful trumpet-shaped flowers which bloom each morning and fade at night. They are native to Mexico and Central America.
The fruit, a capsuled seed, is poisonous. It contains indolizidine alkaloids, which cause low toxicity if ingested by poultry. Specific chemicals include d-lysergic acid amide (0.035%), d-isolysergic acid amide (0.005%), and elymoclavine (0.005%).
