Abstract

The present study reports on the occurrence of Ipomoea hederifolia L. in South Africa. The established populations of Ipomoea hederifolia were detected in 2019 and 2020 in different locations in the Limpopo Province, with herbarium records showing at least four other localities in the country. Further work is now needed to determine the impact of Ipomoea hederifolia on native biota and agricultural production.
