noyau vine, Merremia dissecta

Noyau vine is so much like morning glories that it sometimes is included in their genus as Ipomoea sinuata. This tropical has spread around the world from the Americas. The plant smells like bitter almonds. Infusions and decoctions have been used to treat a wide variety of ailments, including rashes and skin infections, snakebites, and giddiness and intoxication. Wonder if it would help with shingles? Noyau vine here occurs in AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, PA, and TX. Lake Co FL, 10/20/15 (but too late in the morning). Bindweed family, Convolvulaceae
