It does look like THE bindweed (convolvulus arvensis). This is not in my yard but in the ditch at the end of our street. I don't know what to tell you NotMartha. Your vine may turn out to be a big problem in the future. I think it's the seeds that it drops that are such a pain. Maybe someone that knows more about it will fill us in.

I was thinking maybe I'd try to cross this pollen with some of my other glories and see what happens. Just for fun...

Poppy...looks like it is bindweed! I would be grateful to you if you could snatch me a few seeds for sase! Would you please?

Notmartha...if they bloom in the evening, they are moonvine! I grow these every year and I pick the seeds to keep them from taking over! The seedpods get huge so you should be able to get them all!

YES, it is bindweed. I also have it my garden and it is trying to entangle itself in the veggie garden and on the berries I have growing along the fence. I have to be VERY diligent and pull it out daily, otherwise it will flower and go to seed, and then you will have it everywhere!

That is Calystegia sepium ssp. americana from the shape of the sepals, it spreads by rhizomes. Oddly enough I saw it growing in Malta?!

That is pretty. I want seeds too. I can send you some gray Japanese morning glory seeds in exchange. Good luck on the crossing.

I think it it is Calystegia sepium. I'd rather have that than marigolds for sure.
