The Morning Glory is a beautiful, flowering climbing vine (although a shrub variety is also available). While not all species are poisonous, some may cause significant signs when large amounts of seeds are ingested. The seeds from the flowers of some species contain the toxin, lysergic alkaloids. When large amounts are ingested, clinical signs of incoordination and agitation can be seen. Ingestion of foliage typically only causes mild vomiting and/or diarrhea.
