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.

This plant is horrible, it'll sprout up everywhere if you don't pull it out and choke out everything in it path. It isn't fussy about growing conditions either, I've had it grow in dry sandy soil in full hot sun and dry rockhard clay soil in the shade.
