The fungi known as Fusarium live in the soil which is why house plants, landscape and vegetable plants wilt, rot and die from the roots up. However, some plants which we would probably like to see their demise in the garden that may actually act as a fusarium disease host.
These “weeds” do not not seem to have any problems with the fusarium fungi but like to “share it” with other plants. The tall morning glory and the ivyleaf morning glory appear to be 2 of the fusarium carriers.
