I ordered seeds for this ipomea species from eBay and waited and waited almost an eternity for them to arrive.When the package finally showed up there was a U.S. customs sticker stuck on it.Opon opening I found a thank you note from the seller for buying his seeds,but there were no seeds.I was furious and figured because the package was from Thailand that the customs agents thought it was seeds for some illegal drug plant and that's why they pulled them.I researched online and found out it's on the noxious weed list because it can clog up waterways and drainage because it can spread prolifically in warm areas like the southwest.I was just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience.I have never actually eaten this plant or even seen it.
