Looks like morning Glory, some call it bind weed and it is an invasive plant that can be used for binding spells. You can also use it as twine.
Omg! it's actually my birth flower for ppl born in september. This can be great for candle spells and manifestation.
Honestly morning glory is the bane of my garden. Its invassive, it grew up the side og my house and into my tv antenna, it self seeded like crazy and choked out omy sweet potatos on the other side. If you plan on growing much else keep a close eye on this and keep it suppressed.
I have an 8-foot Holly tree in my yard that was almost choked out of existence by a single Morning Glory vine; it took almost an hour of careful cutting, clipping, and untangling to free the tree two years ago, and just yesterday I noticed the "dead" woody base of the vine has been quietly sneaking up the Holly's trunk again, partially hidden by the leaves. It's also done some damage to my azaleas. The only way to really get rid of it is to first carefully disengage it from whatever unfortunate plant(s) it's choking -- do NOT just pull the vine out, it wraps tightly around other branches and is crazy strong so just yanking on it will likely do more damage to the plant you're tying to save than to the vine. Once that's done, clip all the stems down low, very close to the ground (this will buy you at least a season's worth of time if you can't get all the roots out). Finally, dig up as much of the roots & creepers as you can... And be prepared to do it all again a couple of years later. (At least the flowers are pretty!)
I find it appropriate that the morning glory is my birth flower; I too am stubborn as hell. Seriously though, cut those vines ASAP.
I grew up on a farm and my dad refused to let my mother or I plant Morning Glory (the only plant he banned outright) because it is so invasive and hard to manage, if at all haha! It gets tangled up in combines and field discs and can cost thousands in damage.
If it gets out of hand, just cut it back to a manageable size, I doubt you'll hurt it. I actually like the flowers; I think they're super pretty, until they show up where they're not supposed too lol
I've always liked Morning Glories... but agree about their weediness. I have several plants that somehow (I honestly do not know how) managed to take root at various places in my front yard and I am constantly trying to get them to stop choking my Azaleas or the 2-storey Holly tree... >:-( I also used to work at a local college where much of the landscaping immediately around the old main building was English Ivy so I stupidly planted a bunch, thinking it would be nice in front of my house. Ten years later I'm *still* trying to get the frakking stuff to behave & stay where it belongs. I swear, it's worse than Kudzu...
A very belated answer as to what Morning Glory (also, somewhat appropriately, known as "Bindweed") is good for in a magickal sense... According to several sources, Morning Glory seeds under one's pillow will stop nightmares, and blue Morning Glories in the yard promote happiness, peace, and harmony. (Probably not what a lot of gardeners would say, LOL.) Different species of the plant in different parts of the world have been used in a variety of ways, but one constant is that the seeds are toxic when ingested.
Since you are in Arkansas, check very closely for poison ivy when you prune it. I used to live in Mississippi and had this same ivy growing in my back yard. My ex cut it back and never saw the poison ivy mixed in with it. He was covered with poison ivy from head to toe.
A good rhyme from my days in scouting: "Leaflets three, let it be; berries white, poisonous sight!"
