Gardeners' Notes:

This is one of the impossible to get rid of weeds - it loves to climb any plants or any supports. Sometimes you miss them until it's too late. They have insignificant flowers but seeds like crazy.
Bindweed is a common name for this thought it's commonly confused with the morning glory family - even its species name is the same as the Family Convolvulaceae in which morning glory belong in.
