german convolvoluceae

Aschaffenburg, Germany

I have been strolling around in the neighbourhood and found a few local convolvoluceae...

This one has huge leaves and a relatively small white flower

Here is a very robust one with millions of flowers. It grows on a the sidewalk of a main road of my local city Aschaffenburg.

Here is a close-up of the flowers.

I am most excited about this one, which has shredded flower leaves which I have never seen with bindweed so far.

I like the color pattern on the flower in the close up photo, Martin. Quite nice.

Martin - This one is very pretty! http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=7929524 Quite a pretty pattern on the bloom! Any chance of collecting seeds from them?

If the street cleaners don't kill the plants there may be a good chance to get some seeds, Becky.

Here are white calistigias, I believe. The flowers are quite big and native here in Germany.

just lovely, Martin - makes me homesick for the years in my childhood we lived in Germany - there was a meadow of wildflowers nearby over a cliff - have never encountered another meadow like that one with such a profusion and variety of wildflowers.

This one's cute - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/fp.php?pid=7929523 - looks a lot like one I used to see towards the top of Federal Hill downtown in Baltimore, near Ft. McHenry. I enjoyed it much more than the logo of a corporation spelled out in petunias on a slope further below.

Yesterday, I made a bike tour along the Main river. But I didn't proceed at a rapid speed as I was stopping for local bindweed along the bike track. I am amazed how this species varies in size, leaf shape and flower types. I found one with a little red ring inside. The photo isn't that good; I was able to collect a few seeds.

Just in case anyone wonders: the pink ones are Convolvulus arvensis, http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/32093/ - despite the very negative commentaries there i've never fount that one being a problem in germany - very contrary to calistigia, which is pure gardening horror.

I love them all.. wish I had some.
