I have been searching bindweeds and other members of the bindweed family thinking that I would be able to ID this Texas wildflower ... but no luck yet It has a small pale pink bloom, is low to the ground, has leaves similar to Texas Bindweed (Convolvulus equitans) and resembles the Convolvulus equitans that has a pale pink bloom without a dark center and pale reproductive parts (not the color as shown in the photo of this unkown plant). Any assistance with identifying this plant is much appreciated.

The bloom up close ...

I think that Convolvulus equitans has some variations. This one may be one of them.

Hi htop...
If you get seeds, I would LOVE to have some.
That is VERY PRETTY!

Yeah, that's Convolvulus equitans. There are only two Convolvulus in Texas, and pubescent sepals (visible in the leaf photo) occur in C. equitans but not C. arvensis...

It has been confirmed that it is Convolvulus equitans (pink type) by Ron and Patrick. Thank you both.

Linda, you are right. It does have some variations.

Emma Grace and imzadi, I waited for seeds to be produced and went back to collect some, but unfortunately the plants had been mowed down. They did not produce any more blooms so far. I will collect some for you if I ever see any more.

Emma Grace, I am sooo happy that your white Ipomoea carnea did well for you. Give it a hug for me. :o)
